Playing Marbles

The Salers de Felanitx were busy ball de bot-ing yesterday afternoon in the Parc Municipal de Sa Torre, in Felanitx. Rollets were on sale at the occasion, circled biscuits made of almonds, eggs and sugar, deliciously sweet. Traditional Mallorcan music was played by the groups Rossegueta and s’Estol des Gerricó. I took photos to document these events but, for now I have decided against sharing these images.

Instead, I have opted to let you see how the other half enjoys a sunny Sunday afternoon in the Parc Municipal de Sa Torre, in Felanitx. A group of youngsters of Moroccan descent enjoyed playing marbles. The game is as old as history and it seems to be played by the young ones in every part of the world. I played marbles with my friends when I was a kid and, I imagine, you did as well. It was a happy sight, seeing the boys enjoying themselves, and this made for the better picture.

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: May 8th, 2011. The time was 18:59:24.
