Capea Celebration

As an end the year, celebratory event my entire class attended a capea.  For those of you who don’t know what capea is (I certainly did not when I first heard of it), capea is a party at a farm where you get to play with a couple baby bulls. Of course you also have a DJ, open bar, dancing, hookah and food. So there is plenty to do during the 8 hours of partying. For those of you who think “oh know baby bulls!?!?!” no worries…there was no harm done to the bulls. If anything it was the bull that did harm to the students. There were lots of bruises, a bit of blood, one bumped head and a broken wrist. However, I couldn’t of asked for a better way to finish off my university career here in Spain with such a typical Spanish event (lets be real, this type of party would scream lawsuit in the states).

  1. ¡It is Fantastic! You have chosen a very typical Spanish activity, but not every one has understood in the way as you have done it. As you say, a capea is a cellebratory event. A way to play, to do exercise, to meet friends, to express vitality and to live in contact with the nature. It is a pity that there are a lot of people who are againts things that they don’ t know.
