Boat trip!

... We returned to Palma port at around 1600 and headed straight for some frozen yoghurt at this lovely local place (luckily near my new hotel!). After settling into the new hotel (which is also very nice), Kamal arrived at 2100 and we had a small dinner at a small place which was a bit less touristy - making a new barman friend (the best kind!) and sampling a few of his favourite cocktails. A really lovely day - but - ¡Dios mio! - I'm really looking forward to a lie in on ...

... with the waiter in Spanish, which helped. It was very hot today and tonight, and tomorrow it's supposed to be 34C for our boat trip. Monica and I went for a late dinner and randomly stumbled across a very nice restaurant for some authentic Mallorquin tapas. The plan was originally to meet some others for drinks and maybe dancing but it's an early start tomorrow so came home instead (note it's still ...

This afternoon we went to the Es Baluard art gallery which was interesting. A few pieces of local Mallorquin art including a small Joan Miro exhibition. A quick mojito with Monica, Trisha ...

A little woozy after last night's drinks but not too bad! Monica and I both tried to encourage the rest of the class to be more sociable but that's not going anywhere fast - still - early days! After class we headed down to the port and have booked ourselves onto a cruise on Saturday which visits a couple of beaches along the coast. Managed for the first time to get a sunbed by ...

Another good day at school. I made a friend, whoop! Monica, from Brazil, is also here by herself so we are heading out to dinner together later. I feel for her as her English is not brilliant but is far better than my Portuguese.... I'm sure we will work something out! The three main English-speaking people from the course all live outside of the main city so it may be harder to get them out in the evening - but we will see! The lesson today ...
