The Interlude ...

The Interlude ...

Part of the marketplace in the Belén Navideño at La Villa shopping centre, which, fairly unusually for Canarian nativities - that often depict a town or landscape on the islands - actually seems to be of a faintly biblical location. But don't expect it all to be serious, as while we wait for the door on the little outhouse to fly open (see the reason why here), we bring you a short interlude to keep you amused. See the potter and his wheel? (If you're unfamiliar with British TV of old see, "Consisting mainly of live broadcasts, timings were not always accurate in early 1950's BBC programmes, so interludes would be inserted between programmes to keep the audience amused. Typical interludes included: The Potter's Wheel ...")

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
