OK , this is Not a shop!- We were sitting outside La Bodogueta (see my nightlife tip) enjoying a drink or 2!, when we were approached by a hawker selling lighters and other tacky souvenirs.

We weren't really paying much attention, until he set down a toy black bull that scurried across the table - For Tina it was love at first sight! She had to have it!!

After some haggling Tina was the happy owner of Bully, all for 8 euros. (She was even happier when she saw one the same in a shop for 15 euros!)

Even better, Bully had a theme tune - as he set off running, a fanfare and Torro!! could just be heard above our laughs and mickey taking of Tina. Luckily she kept him in her bag for the rest of the night.

She later justified her buy as a present for her husband!! Hmmmmmmm!
Well 2 years later, Bully is still alive and kicking!


What to buy: Got to have a moving musical Bully! Haggle with the street Hawkers...

What to pay: 15 euros seen in a gift shop. Tina haggled for hers and got Bully for 8 Euros

Theme: Toys and Games
