I went to my first live bull fight, we took a bus at 5:45 in the evening headed to El Puerto De Santa Maria to the Plaza De Toros, The plaza was very nice built in the 1800’s, we were lucky it was early may,  I could not imagine the plaza in the July- August months.  The bull fight  experience was very mixed.  I enjoyed the connection between the bullfighter and the bull, however, any harm that came to the bull I disagreed with …after the bullfight we stopped at a bar and had some tapas.

Tapas are appetizers that are  very typical of the Spanish cuisine.  I usually tend to eat at home, enjoying the savory taste that I am accustomed to.  I tried to explain to some family members that I am not a Prima-Donna, or a fuss bucket, I know what I like and when eating out there is always the surprise element.  I was brought up with home cooked meals so the healthier leaner methods of cooking are my preference.
