Garachico: the emigrant

statue of an emigrant, Garachico, Tenerife
This sculpture shows an emigrant leaving (or returning to?) Garachico, a pleasant village on Tenerife.
Garachico lost its economic importance when the harbour was mostly made unusable by a volcanic eruption.

Fountain

A fountain in La Orotava, Tenerife.
I tried lots of different exposures with and without flash, but liked the silhouetted version best.

The statue depicts (well, I don’t think anybody knows what she actually looked like) princess Dcil, the daughter of the “mencey” Bencomo, who defeated a Spanish Force.

Carnival Procession in Santa Cruz

Filed under: — site admin @ 8:15 pm

An archbishop?
Due to bad weather the main carnival event had to be postponed.
So the procession in Santa Cruz took place in the evening which completely changed the atmosphere.
I had the chance to see the other big corso in Puerto de La Cruz today (in broad daylight) - photos from that event later…

Loro Parque

Jumping Dolphin

Yesterday, I visited Loro Parque - a zoo that once specialised in parrots but now also has a huge penguin area and a spectacular dolphin show.
Beautiful and a good choice if one can’t be too sure about the weather.

My first day on Tenerife - not quite as sunny as I had hoped, but fortunately the weather has improved a lot already!
