Spent all day walking around Palma de Mallorca. I saw a few things I hadn’t seen before, including the Arabian Baths. I went expecting something involving water, but they were actually steam baths. They used burners beneath the floor to create the steam, and the rooms were scented by burning rosemary.
Sunday’s closing of the Saint Bartholomew festival was really great. I got some pretty good shots, but I’ll need some time go through them and a steady internet connection to post – so please stay tuned.
Days in paradise? I think it’s my fifth. I’ve lost track of time!! I can’t remember the last time that happened (although I have a sneaking suspicion it was probably the last time I was here). I haven’t gotten much writing done since the first day, but who’s keeping track? Time spent with family, an evening art festival (there is amazing art here in Mallorca), incredible food, a day at the beach… and so much more to come. This weekend is the Saint Bartholomew festival. I’ve heard about it for years, but never been. I’m told the festivities close on Sunday with an enactment that usually involves fire and participants dressed as demons, so let’s hope I can get a good shot of it to share with y’all!
