To Palma today, on the bus. We rarely stay in places with such frequent and affordable public transport. It was a long slog lugging our luggage on foot from the bus station to the apartment, but we had a lengthy coffee and pastries break on the way.
Cati greeted us in English but quickly switched to execrable French mingled with Spanish, claiming it was better than her English (it really wasn’t), but with a a bit of effort we managed to understand her. We had a picnic lunch on leftovers and then went for a brief explore. Palma is a very different environment from Soller. The old town where we are staying is nice, but the area around Plaça de España is scruffy, run-down, and graffitied. This is the Plaça Major,, very close to the apartment.
In the evening we went for early tapas at the Bodega La Rambla. Very traditional, copious, and excellent value for money.
