Ivan, Lil Dave and I had lunch at Mar A Vila again on May 24, 2013. Lil Dave got the chef to make a variety of banana pintxos like bananas and goat cheese and bananas empanada. Ivan and I got goat cheese with vegetables, a tuna stuffed pepper, empanada with cheese and mussels and a new one a ravioli with octopus and tomato. It was tasty food again.. this time enjoyed with a nice light beer.
We walked down to the beach in the Figueretas area. It was such a lovey day out. It’s always nice to have the sun shining with a lovely blue sky.
We walked along the Figueretas Beach until it ended and then walked to Fusion to get a drink. Ivan and I each got a mojito. Lil Dave opted for a banana smoothie. This restaurant is a great place to people watch. Ivan and I chilled out for awhile while enjoying the tasty mojitos. I wrote a message on the funny postcards that I bought yesterday.
Stopped at an art gallery called Mad Dog Gallery. The art work was really cool inside. My favorite was definitely the Pink Panther with boobs.
Ivan, Lil Dave and I walked back to the apartment. Ivan used the internet while I worked on the blog.
Later that night, Ivan and I walked to Formentera Restaurant for dinner. Lil Dave decided to go have a banana pizza at a nearby pizza joint. Ivan and I shared the tasty Padron peppers and the seafood paella with calamari (also, comes with shrimp and mussels).
This time we shared a jug of sangria which was sweet and tasted lovely. It was another delicious meal here. If you love paella, definitely check out this place. Their paella is one of the best I’ve ever tasted in Spain.
It was time to walk up to the Dalt Vila Castle stage area at 10:30 pm. It was a lot more crowded in Ibiza today since it was a Friday. I had forgotten what day it was until Ivan mentioned it earlier. The guy at the door recognized us, but he still asked for Ivan’s ID. He said that there was no re-entry which was different than last night. Also, they didn’t check IDs yesterday.
Ivan guided us to the front of the stage. Sven Väth was playing who is a trance DJ.
I was dancing around and the deep trance music made me feel like a zombie.. kind of drunk and drowsy. I know that’s the point of trance.. but it wasn’t the best trance music I’ve heard. Ivan wasn’t into it, so we left around 11:15 pm. We definitely prefer house music that’s more fun. Trance can be good, but it’s better with some lyrics every now and then… otherwise, it’s a bit repetitive.
Ivan wanted to walk around Dalt Vila before we headed back. This area is simply beautiful.
The white buildings, the colored doors and window coverings and the peeling walls are quite charming. I’m going to miss walking around this beautiful part of Ibiza.
Back at the apartment, we used the internet. Lil Dave was already sleeping. It was time for bed at 5 am. Hopefully, we’ll return to a normal sleeping schedule soon.
