t10102008.jpg
t10102009.jpg
Here is a resort island.

At first I went a market to find a mayo, but just I found Mayonnaise from Sevilla.
t10102010.jpg
I bought these from super market.

I asked about Mahon mayonnaise to shop keeper though, there is no product by Mahon, they don't make mayo for selling here.
Here Mahon is the place of origine of mayonnaise though..!!

t10102011.jpg
t10102012.jpg
t10102013.jpg
This is lunch 12Euro
Pig ear, fish and ice cream.

Mahon is small city, so I go to Ciutadella from now.
But I had to wait for next bus, so I try hitch-hiking!

t10102014.jpg
A kind man stopped in 3 min when I tred, yeah :D

His name was Angel(45:Sevillan), he was such a nice man to take me show around on the way!

t10102015.jpg
Indian rock, can you see it is Indian's left face?

t10102016.jpg
He kindly took me to El Toro, the highest mountain in Menorca!
What a awesome, nice view!! :D

Then he doropped me off on the way, I try next car for Hitch-hiking!
Next car stopped for me in 3min again*

He is from Menorca, local man, so I asked about Mayonnaise, what he make it in home.
Oil, whole egg and salt, then mix.

Then I got at Ciutadella, opposite city in Menorca.

t10102017.jpg
t10102018.jpg
t10102019.jpg
t10102020.jpg
This is old city, I hunged around 1.5hours.

I thought trying hitch-hiking to Mahon again though, the bus was coming in good timing, so I took bus for return to Mahon.
The fee was 4.55Euro, wow expensive!

Then I arrived at Mahon, I went to museum of Menorca untill time to Airport.

t10102021.jpg
Entrance fee was 1.10Euro though, nice museum.
But no information about Mayonnnaise though.

I took bus to airport, then I went to tourist information and asked about mayonnaise.
The stuff said, no information about mayonnaise, but 1month ago there was a conpetition of making mayonnaise! and also last year as well.
Maybe next year as well...?
They still not sure.

And I asked him again how to make mayonnaise.
Sunflower oil, egg and salt.
Olive oil is too strong taste, he said. Yeah~, I agree with that.
And about vinegar, someone use a little, someone doesn't use.
Good information for me :)
There was worth for coming here for me, even it was just 1 day though.

When I hunged around in airport, I found a big bread, Agnesa and Albert said yesterday.

t10102022.jpg
For souvenir 13Euro

A plane arrived at Barcelona midnight, so I rode on the last train to go back home.

I arrived at past 12am, there were other 2 couch surfers from Greece.

t10102023.jpg
