El Gordo (The Fat One) - the top prize - in the Christmas Lottery in Spain was shared mostly in the provinces of Lugo and Málaga, but the Canaries were not entirely forgotten with one series of tickets with the winning number of 71.198 (worth four million euros) having been sold in both San Bartolomé (Lanzarote) and in Granadilla de Abona (Tenerife), the latter having been sold at the petrol station on the Autopista TF1.

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.
