After a passage of 7 hours and 35 miles, we arrived in Porto Christo at around 3:00 in the afternoon yesterday. We are no longer in Menorca, we are in Mallorca, and a largish port at that. We are quite fortunate, there is a supermarket and several restaurants on the waterfront. Ever since we were in Ibiza on the way to Italy last year, I have been very wary of Mallorca. Apparently, Ibiza and Mallorca backed the winning side in the Spanish civil war, and they were rewarded by being built up. Menorca backed the other side and was not as built up as the other two. Apparently just about everything is expensive in Mallorca, at least the groceries are. We will soon find out about the other things that we need, though I dearly hope that this does not turn out to be the case.
