It’s that time of year again. All the things we could’ve blogged about but didn’t because it wasn’t long enough, or we were busy, or whatever. What have we been up to? What haven’t we been up to? We leave in exactly 10 days and we are not handling it very well. Our days are spent skulking … More Winter Short Stories
A few weeks back we decided to take a bus up to a small town named Capdepera to see their Medieval Festival. I (Kaeti, here) had never been to a Medieval festival so I didn’t know what to expect. Chris had been to the one near Denver, so he was super excited. We knew ahead … More Capdepera Medieval Festival

If you want to skip straight to the recipe, go straight to the bottom, but some of this requires some explanation.

As we said it was a whirlwind two weeks of absolutely fun nonsense. We tried to go to as many bonfires, communal barbecues, demon dances, and animal blessings … More Our Sant Antoni Festival
Manacor has just finished a whirlwind two weeks of absolutely fun nonsense. Bonfires, communal barbecue, demons dancing, and animal blessings. It’s been a mess of partying, merriment, and chanting. The Sant Antoni (Saint Anthony) festival is fairly unique to our area. Palma (the capital) has some different stuff (also related to Saint Sebastian) but it doesn’t … More Mallorca Monday: Sant Antoni
