Warship sailors enjoy the peace

THE warship HMS Iron Duke has been in Santa Cruz this week, making a first port visit on her six-month operational deployment in the Atlantic.

The 4,200 tonne ship docked in the capital for four days, prior to embarking on her operations off West Africa.

The ship’s company of over 190 sailors enjoyed a few days of rest and relaxation, but sports and adventurous training were high on the agenda for some.

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.
