The Bull Flight. On your next vacation fight a bull. Come to Quito where, for a reasonable price, you can rent your own bullring. And bull. Only the bull is a small one, a heifer actually, and no one gets hurt. And you have lunch and drinks and a band plays Spanish music and a matador shows you how to use the cape. In the classical manner. The modern, or vulgar, manner. And the drinks sink in and the music takes hold and before you know what hit you you're in the ring with a bull. Toro, hah, toroo, ah-ha. You can arrange your own bullfight anytime during the year. But if you want to compare your capework with the great toreros, plan to come in December when the big Plaza de Toros opens. rii^ . SThe Veronica: 1. Stand with your side to the bull, left 2. As the bull's horns reach the cape, drop 3. Pull the cape and, hopefully, the bull hand up like a boxer's. the left hand, and through with your right hand. Bullflights leave for Ecuador eight times a week (in cooperation with Pan Am). You have our phone number. Or your travel agent's. The moment of truth has arrived. Braniff nternational flies to Ecuador.
