Palma de Mallorca, Spain July 2016

July 10, 2016

Dear WinkWorld Readers,

On my morning walk today, I realized that the cathedral was on my right, and…

and, the Mediterranean Sea was on my left.

Next, I walked by some of my favorite windmills, which take me immediately to the famed novel, “Don Quijote de la Mancha.”  I love the old windmills with the busy road running directly below them. Note the bus in the foreground.

We even have an old castle right up above the hotel where we stay.

The students are all teachers, who are working in countries around the world. Most are working on their masters degree or an advanced certification.

Yes, I am lucky: A great gig, indeed.


  • Dear Joan: Last year I joined Alma Flor Ada in Palma de Mallorca, and then Menorca in search of blue. We did your walk, daily. Indeed a beauty! We are today at the Parador in Argomaniz rediscovering País Vasco and in search of green. Walking a section of El Camino de Santiago provides food for thought.
    Enjoy dear friend. Isabel and Alma Flor

      Oh, Isabel, thank you for sharing your story. I love that you have been to Palma. Just today in class, we talked about you two, and tomorrow I will begin class again with your many contributions! True. Love/hugs to you and Alma Flor

    Such a lovely walk and those windmills! Takes me back decades to my first go at a Masters at Purdue when we read Cervantes totalmente en espanol!
