Tenerife News & Events 01/05/2011

  • "New Year’s Eve in Puerto de la Cruz is Groundhog Day.

    Every year the drill is this – people dress up to the nines; go out to eat; head to the main plaza at around 11.30pm; salsa a bit (unless you’re me, then you shift from foot to foot with no rhythm whatsoever); move to the harbour; eat 12 grapes when it’s midnight; make a lot of oooh and aaah noises at the firework display; drink cava until your head’s as fizzy as the stuff in your plastic glass; then salsa some more (after the cava even I believe I have rhythm) until you die…or dawn arrives.

    Simple really."

  • "It’s the dawn of a new year; a time to start afresh, eager and hungry to put into practice all the things we learned from our mistakes over the last year…or is it?

  • "Local banks in Spain and Tenerife are responsible for a flood of foreclosed properties set to hit the Spanish real estate market in 2011, it is claimed."
