A colossal amount of building work has transformed the island of Mallorca since I moved here, twenty years ago. That’s building as in the construction of roads, motorways, railway lines, underground links, golf courses, marinas, houses, apartments, flats, you name it.
There is talk of all that cooling off a bit now, as in slowing down.
But when you walk around Palma’s central areas you can’t help noticing a lot of construction work still being carried out. Half the Barrio Chino has been knocked down and is being re-built.
