More Fibonacci in Majorca

It was not long ago I first heard about the fabulous bread from fibonacci. A bakery in ciudad jardin that sounds nothing but italian but seem to have norwegian owners. After i heard about them i had to try and it was indeed really good bread they had to offer, along with all sorts of delicious pastries.
