Tenerife News & Events 12/02/2010

  • There was a segment on TV Canarias this morning about the storm, which saddened me on a different level, and that was information that Sunday/Monday’s storm destroyed 60% of the Botanical Gardens in Puerto del la Cruz. Let’s hope that’s one of those statistics which will change for the better as damage is assessed.

  • There will be no state financial assistance for the unemployed whose paro has run out. What people are supposed to do when they have no job, nor unemployment benefit, I cannot imagine.

  • With almost perfect timing for the start of December and to get Tenerife right into the Christmas spirit, the spectacular storm that hit Tenerife at the end of the weekend bringing wind, rain, thunder and lightning also left Mount Teide with a thick covering of snow.

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.
