Day Trip to Ronda!

This was taken from the bus- it was so beautiful & really was as green as it appears in the photo. 

The mountains were so beautiful

This is the "New Bridge" Puente Nuevo

The bull fighting ring in Ronda

Where the royal family sat to watch the bull fight- as the tour guide indicated- even the pillars are different in this section. They are more decorated compared to the others around the ring, which are much more simple in appearance.

The quatrefoil is my sorority symbol & this was taken from the second floor of the bull ring

This past Friday we took a day trip to Ronda. We left around 9:30 and it took less than 2 hours to get there. We had our own tour guide who showed us the bull ring in the new part of Ronda and then, she took us to the old part of Ronda where we saw some churches and cool buildings. To get from the new part to the old part we crossed what is refereed to as the "New Bridge" or "Puente Nuevo" which was beautiful! We took lots of pictures and we could also see the mountains, which were also amazing!
