The environment seems wrapped in a kind of drunken bullfighter, as some local media define the devotion of the city by this culture. In Aguascalientes it is difficult to stumble upon someone who has not had a link to any level with bullfighting. The two schools taurines of the city are very famous in Mexico because they have contributed to the hobby in order to preserve and that the parking spaces are seen filled with young people. One of them is Juan Manuel Maldonado, 19 years. This aspiring veterinarian was becerrista of small and usually go to the bulls alone and sometimes with his grandfather.

Apparently tired after the long journey, the right-hander seville observes a model of the plaza Monumental of Mexico City and a small figure of the Black Christ, the original is kept in the Temple of the Lord of the Oak, in the neighborhood of Triana, a jewel of the heritage of the city. Aguado ensures that the bullfighting in Mexico is a dream come true. “It was one of my goals, without a doubt, one of the important steps of the entire matador”, declares in an interview with THE COUNTRY in Aguascalientes. In particular, the capital hidrocálida is the city of bullfighting in the country, with one of the hobbies most passionate in all of Mexico. By its squares have passed the best figures of the bullfighting Spanish and mexican. “When one thinks of the four-or five-seater in which more illusion makes him to fight, without a doubt is Aguascalientes”, explains the teacher in seville.

They know that the matador in seville has come to the city and patrol every corner in search of a photo and a signature of the poster that got the famous day in The Maestranza. “I was going with the car when I hit a halt when he saw him.

The ‘wizard of Apizaco,’ as he is nicknamed, was, according to many experts in the bullfighting arena one of the ‘last romantics’ of the toreo mexican, that should have been born ‘in another time’. A small simile with Aguado, with his bullfighting classic and leisurely remember to bullfighters of 40 years ago.

The matador in seville is apparently peaceful to not have the pressure regular of The Maestranza, or Sales, where you always expect a lot from him, although the bullfighter is aware that it plays a lot in this new stage. “I come with the satisfaction of the season Spanish made with a certain degree of responsibility to fulfill the expectations here.

After about an hour of ceremony, Aguado decides to leave with his crew. “Tomorrow we have tentadero -small square where it is practiced with calves – in Zacatecas, Thursday, and Friday we will be in Juriquilla (Querétaro)”, excuse. The matador is a tough week ahead and decide to go back to your hotel, the Great Mall, usual place of lodging of bullfighters in Aguascalientes.

Between sips of red wine transmits his love for the matador. “It has come at a time summit to Aguascalientes, the people want to see different things. Aguado fills me, gives me the bullfighting of a chavito who wants to be a figure and what is going to be. Don’t lie, is a bullfighter sincere, with a lot of truth. I’m sure that will be the first of many”.
