Tenerife News & Events 11/25/2010

  • "In most villages on the Island of Tenerife you will find a 'Rural Retreat' better known on the Island as 'Casas Rurales', where you can get away from the maddening crowd and enjoy the Rural side of Tenerife, the villagers without exception will welcome you, they are a proud of their heritage and history and unlike the coastal resorts, have plenty of time to talk to you about it. "

  • "The rainy, windy weather forecast for the end of the week has become a bit more than that. An orange alert has been issued for Thursday by the Spanish Met Office for winds of up to 75kmh in the high areas of Tenerife. On the coasts the alert is at yellow level for rainfall of 15mm in an hour.

    The alert is raised to orange level for high areas on Friday when winds could reach 90kmh. It stays yellow at the coast with similar rainfall as Thursday expected, but with winds reaching 75kmh."

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.
