I was just doing some surfing around local Madrid blogs, including Madrid Me Mata, esmadriz! and La Bitacora de Moeh, when I stumbled upon a blog roll on Nuevo Periodismo which linked to bullfighting blogs. For some strange reason I had never thought that people would blog about bullfighting, but there again why wouldn’t they?
On these sites people blog about all things related to bullfighting, from the bullfights to the people who go, to the people involved in the business. Some of the images on these sites are quite stunning – and I don’t just mean the ones from the Plaza but also the ones where the bulls and horse riders are in the campo.
Here is a selection that I found on there.
* A los toros
* Alicia Ureña
* Cornadas para todos
* Desde el tendido 6
* Desde la charrería (on MySpace)
* La Tienta
* Los toros de A. Hervás
On a related subject, there will be a new film coming out in the Summer on the most famous bullfighter of them all, Manolete. Directed by Menno Meyes, it will star Adrien Brody as Manolete and the cast includes Penélope Cruz, Santiago Segura and Juan Echanove (household names in Spain).
