Andalucia, Spain. The town of Ronda sits atop a plateau skirted by towering cliffs. Bisected by the El Taji gorge, they finally built a bridge so little old ladies wouldn’t have to leap across on their way to market. It’s also the site of Spain’s first bull ring, if you like to fight the bulls. During the civil war, they didn’t take too kindly to the fascists. And judging from the portrait outside the bus station, the townsfolk are still good guys. WARNING: Some footage in this film was taken during the course of cordless bungy jumping. Do not try this at home. We are trained professionals…well, those of us who survived.
