MALLORCA – As I’ve noted in a previous post we approached Mallorca with some skepticism. It’s a major, large scale tourist destination, particularly in August. The airport is huge; it’s a major stopping point for cruse ships; Palma is an LA-type urban sprawl. But we have found a unique, quiet corner of the island where there is excellent hiking in chilling. Here we are on a boat ride to a quiet bay and some snorkeling.

MALLORCA SPAIN – Mallorca is not exactly an obvious place to go in August. It’s very, very crowded with essentially all the vacationers in Europe arriving at the same time for the month of August. We’ve come here because there is a lovely hotel that is in an uncrowded and lovely corner of the island, a hotel that is on a close friend’s bucket list. The trip here from Madrid was fine so so far so good. As you will see I’ve had some difficulty editing.

MADRID – A sensational day walking around here. Boy has Madrid improved its game. Lively. Colorful. Fabulous food. We’re only here a day on our way to elsewhere, but we’ll return.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – I did some shopping and organization for our trip to Spain today, but found a few hours in the afternoon to explore Central Park. Nothing terrific here.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – We had a Brooklyn day today – I met Francesca on Remsen Street with her architect to work out some details of her renovation. Then a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and a subway home.
