Santa Gertrudis, Ibiza

The traumas of the winter reorganization of Santa Gertrudis are pretty much over as the local business owners throw open their doors to offer ‘business as usual’.

Now that the dust has finally settled all involved seem to be in agreement that the end result justifies the means. In much the same way as happened with the road building of the last couple of years, the voices of discontent have given way to optimism that summer on the roads will be a bit easier on us all this year…

The village centre does somehow seem to have grown to celebrate the general mood of optimism created by the improvements. Those with longer memories deny this though, pointing out that the place was already a car free, living space only a few decades ago – a real beating heart of the community.

Casi Todo, the island’s favourite auction house, turned their first auction preview of the new season into a party recently, with ‘The Lost Mountain Orchestra’ performing an acoustic set. Meanwhile a curious crowd inspected the extraordinary array of typically diverse objets d’art destined to fall under the hammer at the Easter weekend auction.

These events are good fun even as a spectator, so for details of their future auctions, please check the Ibiza NOW Monthly Island Calendar, or their web site at www.casitodo.com

We look forward to seeing how this café society boulevard in the heart of Santa Gertrudis adapts to its new stage. It promises to be interesting, as Casi Todo will be presenting their regular ‘home’ auctions on the vast new paved terrace in front of their emporium, where their vine shaded, but cramped, auction space used to be.

Other street theatre is bound to follow as everyone else gets into the spirit…

Tomorrow’s beach will be Cala Blanca, and at some stage the front cover of April’s edition of Ibiza NOW (once its gone to the printer and we’ve watched the footy…) – we’ve also got some great exclusive underwater pics of the Don Pedro wreck.
