Tenerife weather one year ago ….

Visitors to the island on November 16th last year (or residents, for that matter) may remember the torrential rains that caused flooding on the north of the island. Particularly affected was the Barranco San Felipe in Puerto de la Cruz, which is shown in this video. Don't ask me whose bright idea it was to park cars in a – usually dry - river bed, but you can clearly see the consequences.

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.
