One in four residents of Palma are non-Spanish and overall one-in-five people living on the island were born away from these shores. Now, a few months ago I would have found this statistic rather amazing and hard to believe. One of the good things about Palma airport being closed (probably the only one!) is that you know that anyone you pass on the street actually lives here and are not tourists. So if you hear an English voice then you can actually assume that they are residents and not tourists. I have been quite amazed at how many foreign residents actually live on the island.
