    Why do you promote such a barbaric ,outdated and loathesome activity? The bulls are terrified, then tortured to death in a bullring. Horrible. I would never use your services, whilst you promote such a ghastly ‘ceremony’.

      Hi Jill,

      Thank you for sharing your opinion. I understand where you are coming from, but one of the goals with The Blonde Abroad is to highlight different cultural practices and traditions around the world.

      I think it’s better to talk and share about these kinds of cultural practices, though they might be different from our own, rather than gloss over them. I look back on the festival now that I’m older, and while I’m glad that I got to experience it, I wouldn’t go again. However, I think this is the best way to open up a dialogue about the world around us and in turn, promote positive growth.
