Gods And Mortals Ready For Fun At Arona Carnaval

Mount Olympus will pull rank on Mount Teide from 6 to 16 March as Arona Carnaval celebrates an Olympus theme in Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Americas. It’s an easy theme to latch onto, suddenly those dodgy holiday sandals will look a wise investment and hotel and apartment owners will be making sure their bed sheets don’t morph into togas. Efforts to join in are always appreciated, the many Chinese “Todo” shops are a good source for cheap silly hats, masks, and wigs.

Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
