We stayed in the north of Tenerife, greener and more mountains but also soooo much more beautiful than the south!!!
We had a hotel with a small studio as room. we could cook something small. We first had a room just above the entrance of the hotel. The whole day long there were busses coming and going.. smelly noisy busses, so we asked another room and that was much better
The view from the terrace of the hotel
The Iglesia de la Conception in Santa Cruz
I had a compagnon during my sketching... he stayed in my neighborhood, kicking a lighter, looking in the garbage-bins, mumbling...
A quiet corner in the harbor of Puerto de la Cruz... Puerto de la Cruz is a very touristic place, not my cup of tea...
La Oratava two drinks two sketches and nice simple recipe to make at home..
View over Oratava, sitting in the Park of Victoria
I was sketching in the park and there was a man who came to me and asked if i knew the history of the park. He was a free mason and in the monument was built for the free masons and full of symbols, He showed me everything. It was a very interesting encounter!!
Another view over Oravata
Vulcano El Teide... always wear sunscreen and good shoes...
Enjoying the sun on a terrace in Puerto de la Cruz
A colleague of mine gave us a tip of a great fish restaurant in San Juan de la Rambla... we tried it and loved it!!
One evening in the hotel, a local dance group. They saw me sketching and came to have a look, they recognized themselves. I wondered how, because I sometimes started with one dancer and ended in the same sketch with another one :)
Icod de los Vinos
Icod de los Vinos is a very beautiful little city... tourists come to visit the old dragon tree
And we visited the butterfly-garden
we visited Las Montanas de Anaga
