On January 1, 1967 – We Were in Mijas…

I found this old poster a few days ago!  New Year’s Day 1967 – we were in Mijas… Our first Bullfight, in the only square bullring in the world.  The Matador was a youngster (like us) and billed as Miguel Marquez…  Followers of this Blog will know what happened to us during the last 40 years – but what happened to the Bullfighter?

He fought his last bull – and retired in 2002.
Strange, so did I…

    Thanks for your email John,
    I am off on a trip back to the UK and Europe in May and thought it would be interesting checking on the old stomping grounds hence looking up the Zam and dicovering the website.
    As I am sure anybody who freqented the OVC and Zam have goood memories and mates we would like to see again – I guess.
    Anybody in London from mid May from the old connections – I would love to catch up with again.
    Keep well , take care.
