Behind the Scenes with the People of the Orotava Valley

... the very nature of truly authentic guachinches mean that there is no ‘phoning ahead’ to arrange things. Guachinches come and go and you never know if one’s going to be open or not.

We had one day in which to gather enough material and photographs for six mini interviews with local people who were involved with traditional food and guachinches.

Andy and I hatched a plan, met the photographer Tim and off we went, fingers crossed that enough people in the right place at the right time would agree to talk to us and be photographed.
