Mallorca has an abundant choice in village communities. The island is large enough to allow for diversity and contrast in the social web of all these pueblos. Not one village is like the next. Each one is a world to itself.
Alarò is particularly attractive, I think. The village is well kept and clean, as it sits nicely below the Montaña del Castillo d’Alarò, with the Serra de Tramuntana mountains in the near distance.
Last week, the community celebrated the 1st anniversary of its Human Rights Initiative. Japanese musician, Yoko Nomura, gave a faultless recital of Japanese court music on a traditional Koto instrument, at the festive Drets Humans Alarò occasion. Somehow, I wished that my pueblo, Felanitx, would have some of the sophistication that I met in Alarò, a few days ago.
The photo was taken in Alarò, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 21st, 2008. The time was 20:22:53.
