We both had some stuff to post so we headed to the post office. What we didn't realise is most post offices are just a series of counters to pay for postage, but we needed envelopes and some scanning done so it was no help. It took quite some time looking for somewhere to get the envelopes and scanning done but we did - unfortunately it was nowhere near the post office so we decided to worry about that another day.
The bullfighting ring was just nearby so we went there and took a look in the museum (which is free). It contains history of bullfighting as well as a number of costumes of various bullfighters - alot of them are the clothes they died in and you can see the holes and rips in them where the bull got in. We also got to take a quick look into the bullfighting ring. It looks quite big from the outside, but it seems a lot smaller when inside. We were close to the hostel so we headed there for a siesta and to eat the fruit.
Later that afternoon we headed out for a drink at a nearby cafe and then into the cathedral square for more paella. This time we had the seafood one at a different restaurant. It was very tasty, but not as good as we've had before in London or Ibiza. That night we played trivial pursuit in the hostel and Bec won - but only just.
