Only nine days have passed since the Palmanova bombing. Everything seems back to normal. Whilst there was police presence everywhere on Mallorca’s roads in the immediate aftermath of the horrific attack, I am surprised as to how little policing one experiences ever since, here.
There are some uniformed guards visible in Passeig Marítim and near Porto Pí, as well as near Palacio Marivent, but that is normal for this time of year, when the Spanish royals are present for their Summer holidays in Mallorca. Nothing unusual there.
Everything else is as if nothing had happened. The beaches are full, or so it seems. Palma is busy with an astonishing amount of sightseers, tourists, shoppers, people in general. Life is going on as usual.
Pethaps nothing has happened really. Perhaps it all was just a bad dream.
