We just blogged about the who’s, what’s and why’s of Sant Antoni. But we wanted to talk about our personal experiences with the big Sant Antoni festival. 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.

Being in Vienna is like staying over at your grandparents house – everything is calm, and orderly.
