Here is another photo from the bull fights of the 29th. I forgot to provide this link in case anyone wants to read a bit more about them. Obviously in Spanish there is a lot more information available, but this is the English version. Also, as a point of interest - all of the matadors come from Spain - they are not locals.

I don't like that "sport," Usually they kill the bull afterward.

Incredible! So much color and action in that shot. Very, very nice.

The colours, the framing and the action are fantastic. We have lots of bullfights in the south of France too: it's our common culture with Spain.

Thanks for the great shots. I would have enjoyed the bull fights, but we were there at the wrong time of the year I guess. Anyway, Great shots. I'm enjoying them, and will look often for maybe some things that we did see. Thanks again!

Thanks for the interest everyone! I was glad to have some shots of this festival to post. I know that not all are fans of the bullfights (for reasons like Susan said) but since this is about Quito and its culture, I thought it important to include.
