One of the highlights in Palma for me was the Cathedral. Though I do not believe in what they are selling, it is a fact that some of History’s greatest minds spent a lot of time building and decorating these structures. The Palma Cathedral is unique in that ithey continue to add to this 600 year old building. Check out the stained glass work and frescoes by Miquel Bercelo. Damn. 300.000 lbs of plaster which he punched from behind to create the faces, fish and human forms.
After Palma we travelled to Cala Canutells on Menorca overnight on the way to Sardinia. Talk about the perfect setup. Heldeleine is the blue boat furthest out. Great beach and a fine restaurant right there. Not too bad…
At least some of that Hapsburg gold was put to a reasonable use!
Sold! Sign me up for next year!
Wow, LOVE that water color!!! The water looks a little different here in BC… We did kayak today over to what we thought was an island, but the island started moving and it turned out to be 30 some odd seals all piled on top of each other floating that made a huge ruckus trying to flip off of each other and dive – – it was very entertaining!
Any thoughts on extending the Jubilee line from North Greenwich to Bexleyheath, via Charlton Riverside, Charlton Village, Woolwich Common, Sh17&ert#82oo;s Hill, etc etcWishful thinking I know!
