  • "Luckily for me Tenerife offers a window on the heavens that few other destinations can match, the skies here are incredibly clear, partly thanks to nature and partly due to shrewd protection against sky pollution."

  • "The first thing to look out for are the budding poinsettias which thrive in cultivated hotel gardens, parks and roadside displays all over the island at this time of year and can be seen growing wild by the side of the road and along country paths. In Tenerife’s climate the poinsettia grows like weeds and left to its own devices reaches heights of ten feet with huge double clusters of bright crimson bracts."

  • "As we headed homeward with Mount Teide visible in the clear night sky, the three recounted their day’s experiences. Despite having a mini disaster far from home, they were in great spirits and very philosophical about what had happened. In fact they were overwhelmed with the friendliness and kindness that complete strangers on Tenerife had shown them. The Laguneros had done themselves and Tenerife’s reputation proud. They’d experienced a Tenerife that was muy amable."

  • "Deflated, utterly deflated, I’d lift my bucket having lovingly packed it with sand and tapped it on the bottom with my little spade but it would crumble at the edges , less like a castle and more like a disaster. Then the tears and tantrums would come, a bit embarrassing as I was 29 at the time. maybe that’s why I am so impressed by the Tenerife sand sculptures that appear by magic on Las Vistas beach in Los Cristianos."

Posted from Diigo. The rest of my favorite links are here.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
