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.

'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).

Please click on the small arrow if you like to join us through the tunnel.
