  • Blue unicorns, alien lampshades and luke warm treacle, well that’s what my scribbled notes seemed to say when I woke in a haze on Sunday morning. Thankfully a shower, food and a quick scroll through my camera helped to focus my mind, and memories of Los Cristianos bars formed a semi orderly queue.

  • No-one remembered an actual red alert, but knew of plenty yellow or even orange ones which had turned out to be storms in teacups, so throughout Sunday, when warnings were mis-interpreted there was a lot of sarcasm going around - and this in a country which really doesn't do sarcasm.

  • As something resembling normality returns to Tenerife and the Canary Islands, reports of the intensity of the wind, rain, lightning and thunder that have spectacularly assaulted the island range from being not as bad as expected to being described as Delta 2.

  • Aemet is forecasting a “new borrasca” starting on Saturday. It will bring rains, but it will not be an electrical storm such as we’ve just experienced, and most importantly, will pass quickly. It should be over by midday Sunday.

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.
