The weather looks good. We are promised temperatures of around 19° C for most of the island over the next few days, with the possibility of some rain today and tomorrow. Not so good the news about the volcanic ash, though. 25,000 flights were cancelled Thursday and Friday, 225 of which effected Balearic airports so far and of those, 200 were cancelled in Son Sant Joan (PMI). If you wanted to leave the island yesterday or today, chances were you had to stay put.
How about going out and doing something this weekend in Mallorca? What do you think? What would you fancy?
Unless you wanted to do some work in your garden, and in case you are not held up with some last minute Spring cleaning in the house, you could make your way to Palma and visit the Fira Còmic Nostrum (Comics fair) at the Centre de la Misericòrdia. Or you could go and see the horses trot in Manacor, today, or in Palma, tomorrow. Or you could nip down to Calvià and visit the Fira d’Oví i Caprí (Goat and Sheep fair).
Alternatively, you might want to visit the Mostra Gastonòmica de la Sípia in Alcúdia, or the Fira Naùtica del Port d’Alcúdia. Part of that nautical show is a Muestra de Embarcaciones de Vela Latina. Also, the Hublot PalmaVela is on this weekend, a sailing competition with over 100 boats in the Bahía de Palma, organized by the Real Club Náutico de Palma.
When did you last visit Santa Eugènia? There, a Fira Agricola i Ramadera is held this weekend, including a Mostra de Cuina de Santa Eugènia. If you don’t like Santa Eugènia, you could go to Porreres instead. A Diada d’Agricultura Ecològica will be held there tomorrow, Sunday, as part of the Fira de Porreres.
Or you could go to Pollença and have another tasting of fine wines. The Fira del Vi will be held there all day today (10h00 – 20h30) as well as Sunday morning (10h00 – 14h00). I will probably be there this afternoon, as I’m not much into drinking too early in the day. Might see you there, then. Don’t taste too many samples if you are driving, though.
Have a happy weekend, whatever you do. And have a safe flight if you’re off somewhere, volcanos permitting.
