The Strange and Beautiful Hearts of Tejina

All around me people are hurling insults at each other. The crowd sways this way and that… and I’m stuck in the middle. If I was anywhere else I’d be concerned that I was about to be caught in the middle of a mass brawl.

But this is Tejina (the one near La Laguna, not the one above the south west coast) where shouting abuse at your neighbours shows you love them really.
