Santa Cruz’ Pancho Camurria shanty town

Janet Anscombe says, "I first posted about Santa Cruz’ shanty town near the
Pancho Camurria sports centre three years ago, and if anything, it is
now bigger and certainly better established than when it first came into
being, and into the news. And now it is in the news again with the
death of a 53-year-old British woman, said to be vulnerable and under
social services care."

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.
