REWARD OFFERED
for return of fish in San Carlos, Ibiza


Unfortunately, the fish of the pond of San Carlos in Ibiza have, I believe, been stolen. There were around twenty goldfish and Koi Carp, some of which were three years old and about ten inches long.
I bought the fish out of my own money but for the whole village's enjoyment but one person wanted them all to themselves. I've watched those fish grow over the last three years and they have brought me and others a lot of enjoyment, especially in the winter. It was always lovely to buy fish from a pet shop tank and release it into the huge pond knowing it was probably thinking, 'Wow....it goes on and on forever!' They had the kind of freedom most goldfish could only dream of. Now, I imagine, the fish are back in a tank or small pond and tortured by their relative captivity.

The fish were not only wonderful to watch but were a very effective weapon against mosquitos. The water was regularly refreshed by the natural spring water source but it was mostly calm. Mosquitos lay their eggs in calm or stagnant water and then the fish tuck in for dinner.  I have had very few mosquito bites in the last few years whereas before the fish I would be bitten all the time. Given the 'pond' is one of the few vessels of water in the area it will surely have attracted a lot of egg-laying mosquitoes. The fish also helped to keep the frog population below plague proportions in exactly the same way. In fact, it would be beneficial to Ibiza if every water deposit housed a handful of fish.

One thing is for sure: whoever took the fish must have known how to do such a thing as they are very hard to snare. You cannot remove so many fish from such a large pond in a short enough time to not be noticed unless you know what you're doing.
I am offering a €100 reward to anyone with information that leads to the safe return of the fish, which were hugely valued and are now greatly missed. Or maybe the person who took them will regret what they did
and sneak them back in.

Full Moon Party at Pou Des Lleo in Ibiza

Full Moon Party Ibiza
 
A holiday to Ibiza would not be complete without a full moon party so it is with huge delight we can inform you that the Chringuito (beach bar) at Pou Des Lleo is hosting just that. So far the party has only been during the full moon evenings but there is a rumour the party will become a weekly event. Let's hope so because this is the injection of joy the island needs after years of being railroaded
by the VIP bandwagon.
 
These relaxed, friendly and free entry events, which go on until the early hours, are a refreshing alternative to the serious, designer, buffed, wristband brigade. These casual full moon parties offer a 'real Ibiza' experience. May they continue. Surely it will because, despite having a DJ, the noise levels were not too high and there was no drumming, the sound of latter traveling a long way.
 
The photo above makes the air look full of white stuff but this is just a photography flaw due to the flash, which reflects light off dust, pollen and moisture. Some people say these 'orbs' are in fact ghosts, in which case the Ibiza's ghost community chose a good party to haunt.
