A Whistle-stop Tour of Santa Cruz

You’ve got a couple of hours to kill whilst passing through Tenerife’s capital, Santa Cruz. It’s not enough time to explore the city in full, but it’s too much time to kill with a cup of coffee in the bus station.

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