Casa Rita

Casa Rita is located on Formentera Island, the smallest and most southerly of the Balearic Islands of Spain. When I first saw Jordi Canosa‘s photos of this harmoniously rustic home, I was immediately reminded on one of my favorite flamenco songs, Aire by Josè Mercè. He sings: “que tenga la puerta abierta la alegria de mi casa,” which means to have the door open to joy and happiness in your home!

    That is gorgeous. And I have to say, for some reason it just cracked me up that you listen to Jose Merce. Why am I so surprised? I have no idea. But I got a total kick out of it.
