It is so easy to please children’s hearts and desires in Spain or anywhere, really; sweets will always do the trick. Give them some churros or crèpes, some gofres or algodon dulce (candy floss), manzanas de caramelo (toffee apples) or bunyols, and the youth will be pacified, for a moment at least.
Don’t get me wrong: I do not condone this attitude. In fact I was pleased when I overheard a parent telling his teenage daughter to forget it; no sweets, he said, think about your teeth. I just thought it was a nice photo, brought to you by the makers of the daily Mallorca photo snippets. The sweets stall was in attendance during the Sant Antoni foguerons (bonfires) in the town of Felanitx, a week later than everywhere else, two nights ago.
The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: January 23rd, 2010. The time was 23:36:06.
