Mallorca, Balearic Islands

Catherine and I arrived on the island of Mallorca yesterday. We stayed in the city of Palma our first night and will travel to the rugged northern coast today. Palma itself is an amazing city with many palaces and museums, and is home to one of the most beautiful gothic cathedrals in the world. We spent time today at the Cathedral and its museum, Palau March an art museum in a palatial mansion, Museu de Mallorca which houses an archaeological collection in a converted 15th century palace, and Can Marques which is a 14th century mansion that has been outfitted in the style of a typical family. Amazing. I will post photos soon...
