Few things in my life have been as interesting from a cultural perspective as this bullfight was. I was in Nîmes for the weekend with a friend and we decided to attend it on a whim in order to see the famous Nîmes arena from the inside and experience something new. We must have been the only tourists in the arena, surrounded by locals of all ages who watched and reacted to every move and with Olympic-level intensity. While the bullfighting was difficult to watch, the music, costumes, and atmosphere were incredible.
