How do you get a ticket for the bus and do they all depart and return together?

I think you just get on at the bus stop but will try to find out more.

There were 3 loud booms earlier this morning which can only mean that the guys are now in Formentor cutting down the tree .

Nothing Sant Antoni related follows H&S protocol, that's what makes it sooooo much fun and long may it remain that way .

Default Health and Safety

I'm not so sure!!

After all, he is only wielding a chainsaw, without helmet or goggles, from the safety of a digger bucket of a JCB, about 20 feet off the ground, without safety belts!!!

As you do!!!
