Day 1,028: Mediterranean Cruise: Valldemossa, Majorca.

Laetitia led a tour group on a Mediterranean cruise. On the second day in Majorca, they visited the small village of Valldemossa, where composer, Frédéric Chopin spent the winter of 1838/1839 in a former monastery in ValldeMossa, Majorca, with author, Amandine Dupin (George Sand). They were not popular with the locals. The parish priest denounced them because they were not married.

When came Chopin, the Polish composer,
To the Majorcan town, Valldemossa,
With his mistress, George Sand,
They’d a scandal at hand
Spawned by their affair frank, not.
