128. Balearic… Ibiza…
Life on Ibiza is chaotic and special… what a pity! Such a beautiful island… spoiled by a frenzied confusion of night and day!
You cannot go to dinner before midnight… sipping the “aperitivo” at nine… dinner ends at 2 am… almost the right time to go clubbing! The discos themselves are no different from those that exist in other parts of the world…maybe the DJ’s there are what makes the difference.
I wish to express my opinion on the DJs, of course without naming names. The two or three most famous DJs, those most loved by the young, are always playing the same music and all the others DJs repeat the same songs… I know them all, personally, and they are extremely nice!
Perhaps, at first, everyone had his own style, but now they are all the same… copying each other… the only difference is the club in which they perform or, as the younger ones say, they “play”. For me to play… means to play a traditional instrument!
Ibiza is beautiful but with skyrocketing prices… it is invaded by Russians who spend very easily… I believe that in Russia it is very easy for some people to make money!Ibiza is a vacation spot for people who spend eleven months a year behind a desk… oppressed by problems… people who want to get away from family problems… young people looking for easy romance and adventures… Ibiza may not be the right place to look for longer-term relationships… If you love nature holidays, in which to recharge your batteries… to find new friends… new interests… if you are fond of life… if you want to dream and listen to what is within you… Italy is the most beautiful place in the world.
Our islands are special! They are a wonderful gift from God! Each section of the Italian coast offers a different landscape… from the north to the far south!
Fifty per cent of tourists in Ibiza are Italians, among them some rich. The new Cipriani is a sophisticated restaurant, establishing itself on an island that used to thrive on folklore! Its customers, mainly Italians, go there for the fine dining and to be seen… “I am in Ibiza too!”
As I write this post I’m asking myself so many questions… maybe I exaggerate in my judgments… maybe it is time for me to get away from this round of fun, gossip, appearances and get back to my roots!
Perhaps we are all guilty of dreaming to participate in a life which, when we achieve it, find that we had not fully appreciated what we had in the first place.
Tomorrow I will continue, I would like to share with you my thoughts…
I LOVE YOU
