Two tilts

The leaning tower of Pisa.

The most cliché tourist photo this time outside the Cita shopping center. Has to be the weirdest kitsch shopping center ever.  

It was my " Buy Nothing Day", and postcards don't count !

Eye spy


April day 17

Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky,
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes all the same.

There's a green one and a pink one 
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

Comfort

April day 15
Walking on the Beach Promenade

We loved walking back and forwards the paseo. It is quite long from San Agustin to Playa del Ingles and then to Faro.  At some points you have a beautiful view over the sea and the dunes. The beach itself is also great for walking, hopefully the wind blows at your back not into your eyes.

Did you know that the Canarian Aloe Vera plants are considered the best in the world?

Aloe Vera or Aloe Barbadensis Miller is a plant from the lily family. Although originally native to North Africa, this plant has been cultivated in the Canary Islands since ancient times. Thanks to the mild climate, proximity to the sea and its volcanic soil, the plant develops its best properties.
