The Real Titans of Tenerife

Regular readers of this blog will know that the film “Clash of the Titans” was filmed in Tenerife a while back. For me the guys and girls who undertake this extreme sport are the real Titans of Tenerife, so if you are out and about the island on October 24th and see any of the runners making their weary way, please give them a cheer of encouragement. I’m told every cheer is heard and counts.

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.
