Spent a day wandering around Palma... The city is quite large, and so I stuck mostly to the old areas of 'tourist' interest. There are churches, a cathedral, plazas and museums all over the place, but being there on a Sunday meant that I was limited in what I could see and do. Many thinks remain lose forgave reduced hours on Sundays, something that seems to be less common in North America but still prevalent in many other places.

On our bus ride to the airport, we did notice several high end resorts in Palma, But I kind of liked the kitschy area we stayed in. We'd go back there again and spend more ...
