Mini-heatwave arriving this weekend

Following on from the Canarian government’s fire-risk alert, the Tenerife Cabildo has introduced a ban on all fires in mountain areas from 5pm tomorrow, Saturday 9 May, as a result of the high temperatures anticipated combined with low humidity. The ban relates to agricultural burnings-off and bonfires, machinery operation, fireworks, and recreation area BBQs as well as any other activities likely to pose a fire risk. The Cabildo says that the ban will remain in place until conditions return to normal levels, and asks the public to avoid forest areas in the meantime.

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.
