Summer time and thankfully Mallorca is busy. I spent my two week break in beautiful Sa Rapita on the south coast. Popular with German and Spanish tourists, apart from me, there wasn′t a Brit in sight. Infact I felt rather “alone” while watching the European Championshipssays Lorian Hardcastle.

-The local authorities need to crackdown on food labelling in foreign languages. I went into a German owned supermarket to buy some stomach pills. I found what I thought were the pills I wanted but as all the labelling was in German and the Spanish small print was very small, I asked the shop assistant to confirm that it was the right medicine.

-I proudly picked my first home grown tomato this week. It was quite a special moment. As I admired my handy work I suddenly thought that it must be one of the most expensive tomatoes in the world.

Unfortunately, my local food shop is not interested in buying my other three tomatoes which are growing away at the moment. I can′t understand why….three tomatoes for 42 euros sounds like a good deal to me!
