Summer solstice this weekend

It's solstice weekend, and if the Güímar Pyramids celebration isn't to your liking, then perhaps a visit to the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias will be. The IAC is holding an open day at the observatory this Friday and Saturday, 20 and 21 June. For more information, see the official website HERE. Alternatively, one could go even higher for the solstice, and take advantage of the Teleférico's offer to see the midsummer sunset on the 21st from the highest point on Tenerife.



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.
