My Dad

Charles Osterbro
21.08.1932 - 26.06.2011


My dad was moved up to heaven Sunday morning 26.06.2011, 9am.
He had been suffering from cancer, which finally was spread
all around inside his body.



Our hearts are heavy with sadness and tears, But our
memories are full of the love and kindness you
gave over the years. Missing you always.
R.I.P.



After the funeral a memorial service will be held in the assambly house of the church.

The Moon Eclipse

Tajao.


My last night on Tenerife, before I went up to Finland, was a little bit special. We went up to a small fishermens village called Tajao to watch a moon eclipse.



The nature in Tajao is special because of the rockets.

Vacation


I will go to Scandinavia on Thursday morning.
My last night at Lewinskis will be on Tuesday night.
I don't know yet how long I will stay but I will tell you when I know.

Carpaccio


The other night Brito made 'Carpaccio' for us.
He is very handy in the kitchen and in the home in general.
He,he! I live more like a princess now!

Buena Vista

The balcony view at the hotel.
The hotel is only a few meters from the ocean.


A group of 50 people booked the Lewinskis terrace last Saturday and I got an extra night off.
I would normally have been singing 2 hours before the Canarian band that
sing there Fridays and Saturdays.
Brito also arranged an extra day off and Friday afternoon we went up to the north of the island.
We stayed in a hotel in Puerto de La Cruz and went the next day for a trip to Buena Vista.
Imagine I've been living on Tenerife almost 7 years and I've never visited
'Punta de Teno' in Buena Vista before, which is the most north-west point of Tenerife.
It's a very beautiful place and I recommend you to pay a visit if you've got time while
you are on Tenerife.


We stayed on the 11th floor and it made me a little bit dizzy when I look down.


Friday night we had a dinner in this Guacinche in La Ursula.
I think I was the only 'extranjero' (foreigner) among all these Canarians.


Me in Garachico, next morning.


This monster is in Los Silos.
What animal is it? Anybody knows?


When you go to 'Punta de Teno' in Buena Vista you have to drive through the small 'eye'.
After you have passed it you have to drive through a horrible tunnel.
More about this in the video clip below...


The view at the 'eye point'.



There's also this beautiful rock.


'Punta de Teno'.

The beach in Punta de Teno.


'El Faro' in Punta de Teno.


Restaurant El Burgado at the Golf area in Buena Vista.
We went here for a tapas...
This is one of my favorite restaurants now.


The interior is very special with a small bubbling rivulet inside the restaurant.


The wine, the bread and the mojo sauce were excellent.


I had 'Chopitos' for the first time in my life and I just like them.


'Queso frito' was also very nice.


On the way back to the south we went down to 'Los Carrizales'
which is the neighbor village of Masca.


We visited this house where Brito often stayed,
with his aunt, when he was young.



The valley of Los Carrizales.



This is how the normal tunnels are here on Tenerife.
The one on the way to Punta de Teno is horrible. If you are suffering from
claustrophobia you shouldn't go there. It's quite scary.
There's no lights and it's very low and narrow with no protection on the
walls inside and I think it's about 300 yards long (about 270 meters).

Dia de Canarias 2

This is a video clip from the picnic we had in El Médano a couple of days ago.
After the meal we had a stroll among the rockets, down at the beach line, to see if
we could find some interesting animals there.
