After a full night of refreshment I wake up early.  There is no Internet cafes near so I use the hotels Internet.  Even in this hotel the computers are old and cannot take SD cards.  The software is so old I doubt it would load the pictures anyway.  Its the same in most of the hostels, they advertise Internet but have only old broken computers.  
I am to meet the German girls at lunchtime to watch the Easter parade.  They carry a statue of Jesus through the town dressed in old fashioned garments with what I can only describe as Ku Klux Klan hoods, it was very strange but very interesting.  Easter is a great festival in Spain, so families are out and dressed up in their finest.  We went for lunch, the sun was finally shining so we wanted to sit outside but found everywhere was full.  We ended up with a drink and some Tapas  so arranged to met up for a proper dinner.  It was still very busy so funnily enough dinner was more refreshment and more Tapas!  I am a great lover of tapas, but most of it was based on ham, egg and cheese so was starting to get very repetitive.  The girls had to get back to their hostel by 10, so Ian and I carried on with a few refreshments and stroll back to the hotel.  
We forgot about oaty, he had been left on my bed.  The room had been cleaned and Oaty was back on the bed.  We dread to think what the Spanish maid must have thought about two men and a blow up donkey.  I am not quite sure what she must have made of it but I like to think we have upheld the tradition of true British eccentrics.........
