Walking around the winding, narrow streets in the old town of Ciutadella, I kept looking up to admire the shapes and colours of the buildings. This part of town was like a maze with so many corners to turn; yet it was small enough to wander around easily without needing a map or worrying about getting lost.

I thought the street-lights were so worthy of having their photographs taken, that I have about fifty shots of them.

Some of them even flutter their eyelashes at you:

The houses are painted in such wonderfully vibrant colours:

Colours which look even more amazing against a blue sky:

In the heat of the afternoon sun, the locals close their shutters to enjoy a cool siesta:

But when you have only five days in Ciutadella, siestas seem like waste of time. After all, there’s plenty of time to catch up on snoozes when you get home!

Hopefully, in the not-too-distant future, we can all get out and about once more, and visit places that are quite different from where we live. In the meantime, I am enjoying reminiscing on past trips, and reliving them through photographs.

In the meantime, STAY SAFE, EVERYONE.

Gorgeous. I’d be having an excellent photo time there as well.

Siesta time can be frustrating for the traveller but once in the swing of things………great photos. I love shutters 🙂

    I certainly enjoy a siesta after lunch here at home in winter beside the log fire, but not quite the same as Mediterranean!

I'm always pleased to read comments.....
