Trip to Spain - 5 days in Mallorca (Day 3)

Weather report:  A beautiful sunny day.

Day 3 was primarily spent walking around the narrow winding streets and absorbing the culture, observing, people watching, etc.   The first few photos are churches I popped into a few blocks from my Airbnb apt.

I don't think I've ever seen a pipe organ with horizontal pipes.  Then again, what do I know?

The altar.

I always love the spectacular domes in these places.

Recycling bins.

I like the tile-work framing the windows.

Food is everywhere in Palma, and it generally involves baguettes.  This store, a chain, had all these beautiful sandwiches ready-made sandwiches and wraps (upper area) ready to be snarfed down.

Ham anyone?  (did someone call me??)

Typical shopping scene around Palma.  Narrow streets, sometimes no wider than 1 car, made for a nice walk and people-watching.  The next video is along the same street, adding even more charm to the walk.  Click on the arrow to run the video.  Once playing, click in the lower right-hand corner to enlarge the screen.

City workers wrapping the trees in white twinkly lights for the holidays and winter season.

How more charming can you get hearing the clip-clop of the horses down a cobblestone street?

About Me

Palma, Mallorca, Spain
This is all about my transition from an American lifestyle and culture to my newest adventure, life in Spain, in the city of Palma on the island of Mallorca in the middle of the Mediterranean sea!! I moved from the USA to Cuenca, Ecuador, South America and lived there for 7 years before moving here to Spain in early 2018. To read about my adventures in Ecuador, check out my other blog "Ahhh Cuenca!!". I'll be recapping some of my day-to-day experiences (and mishaps) to highlight what it's like to live in Europe....across the pond.
