I've been to a bullfight and have to admit I found myself rooting for the bull. It's not a sport I would endorse, but at the same time I don't feel (as someone unfamiliar with the subtleties and traditional importance in its culture) it's my role to place judgment. All that aside, this woman is totally fearless and I'm in awe.
