This weekend was so much fun! Friday, as I already mentioned, was Bellver Castle. After that, there was a dinner for all of the ERASMUS students at a fabulous restaurant. Everything I've had to eat here has been amazing. You all may not recognize me when I return because I'm pretty sure I'll have gained about 50 pounds. The dinner was so much fun, because the people we ate with were from all over the world. I met a couple of girls from Bulgaria, a guy from Sweden, a few from France, Colombia, and Finland! After dinner, there was a party for all the international students, so I went to that with a few people from my program. It was a lot of fun as well, and I loved meeting so many people!
Saturday, I spent a couple hours at the beach (!) and then went shopping. A group of us (Americans, Swedes, and Bulgarians) went out to el paseo. So. Much. Fun.
Then on Sunday we went to Valldemossa, which is probably the most beautiful town I've ever seen. It's up in the mountains and surrounded by trees. There are cute little shops everywhere where you can buy authentic Mallorcan leather and blown glass. Also, when we first got there, the Sunday mercado was going on, so there was even more fabulous purses, scarves, sunglasses, and a bunch of other adorable things to buy. I'm definitely going back! (people, expect your gifts to come from here :D)
Why aren't our streets this pretty?
I'm rather impressed with this picture, because you can totally see how the Catedral is reflected in the water! (I def need a picture at night, because it's lit up with green light!)
