Old Houses

This house in the center of Las Galletas has been evacuated but
how much protection will the fence and the nets be if the house comes down?

There are some old houses on Tenerife that better would be made stronger, or
taken down, in case there would be an heavy earthquake.
People are still living in some of them.

I wonder if all the old high complexes here in Los Cristianos will make it if there will be an heavy earthquake. Have they got a construction that is strong enough? If not I think the "Commmunidades" better should start preparing for this...just in case...
Some have started working on it while some keep quiet hoping for the best.

The house in Las Galletas has only got a function as a lamp holder.

Did the people leave in hurry?
The curtain was anyhow left on the outside when the window was closed.

Las Galletas

Me at the harbor of Las Galletas.

Yesterday when it was my day off we went down to Las Galletas for lunch.

White bread, mojo sauces and a Canarian white wine.

My favorite fish soap that I always have here.

"Sardinillas frescas con papas arrugadas".

Sorry I forgot to take any photos of the desserts.
Brito had something like a mango fromage and I had a carmel brulee.

We took the opportunity to have a stroll along the beach front.

There was a cute little dog that was barking at itself.
It was too windy for the camera microphon and you can't hear how it's barking, but
it probably thought there is an other dog in the water...?
So cute!!!!

Without Makeup

You maybe never have seen me without makeup?
Here you get your chance.
Do you think I look silly with this bow on the head?
Brito think so, but I like it.
But I don't go out on town with it on though.


The Best Carpaccio

This is the best Carpaccio I've ever had.
Except the normal ingredients it has got asparagus and roasted apple slices.
Brito is a very good cook! I just think I get too spoiled at the moment!

This time I made the desert...it's a quick made calorie boom!

Brito Was Assaulted

When Brito woke up Sunday morning (about 8.30) he decided to go over to one of the apartments that we are letting out to change a lamp bulb. A Swedish girl would move in there in the afternoon.

Down at the bar, where we live, he was told that the police were looking for a crazy man who was going around in the town attacking people, but he didn't take much notice about it and continued the walk down to the apartment.

Outside the fuel station he saw a man standing on the street looking at him but he didn't think more about it and continued walking.

The man started following him and on the street outside Hotel Andreas. He was walking on one side of the street and the man on the other.
When Brito a little bit later walked into the street that is between Crisol and Fayser the man passed him.

In the end of the street the man suddenly stopped and started waiting for him.
When Brito came closer to the man the man started talking to him but Brito didn't understand what he said. He probably talked in a north African language because the man looked like he is from this part of Africa.

When Brito then passed the man he suddenly went after him and took a choke grip around his throat so that Brito couldn't breath for a long time.
He was very strong and Brito thought he would get a black out, but after a long while he finally got a grip around the mans leg and started bending it all he could.
This probably caused a lot of pain to the man and he loosed the grep around the throat a little bit and Brito turned around and gave him a smock in the face and then the man run away.

Brito sat down for a couple of minutes to breath and a woman who had been watching it stayed with him and asked if he's okay.
Then he decided to go over to the police station in the next block, that is behind the culture house. When he got back on the street outside the hotel Andreas he saw a man sitting at the street bleeding from the head. The crazy man had also been attacking him.

The police station was closed when it was Sunday morning so he had to call them instead.
After he had been talking to the police he went over to the medical center. He had a lot of pain and a difficulty to breath when the throat started swelling on the inside.
He got antibiotics and he's better now but has still got a lot of pain in the body and in the throat.

The police have probably caught the man, but we haven't heard anything about it.

People with mental illnesses like this should be locked in and not be able to walk around in the town.
They hear voices that tell them what to do and you can never be sure about what they will do next.
If the voice tell them to kill they will kill and they are very strong when they are in this mood and act.
They've got more power than normal and it can even be difficult for a group of many strong men to keep a crazy person like this down while waiting for the police.

It was so delicious!
He also made a quick fruit desert for us.
Learn how to make it in the video clip below.

Deep fried squids.


Garlic prawns.

Please, click on the small arrow if you like to watch him preparing
the fruit dessert.

(Te quiero = I love you, but the Spanish youths write only a 'K' instead of quiero when they
like to make a message shorter... i.e in a sms message.)

The Ingredients:
Different fruits in pieces,
(we had mango, pineapple and kiwi)
Condensed milk or caramel- or chocolate sauce,
(we had condensed milk this time)
Spray cream.

A nice dessert or snack for a hot day like yesterday.

It's goood!!! Brito finally just had to lick the plate to get all out of it.

Fizzy Water In The Egg Mix

Last Monday Brito and me made a lunch together including Canarian
sausage, salat and fried onion rings.
He put some fizzy water into the egg paste, that you dip the onions in before you
turn them in the flour and fry them, and it caused a crispy very delicious crust.
I didn't know this before and thought I must tell everybody about it.
...Or is it only me who didn't know this tick?
Anyhow, I love them crispy!!!

A Lovely Day

The main beach in El Medano.

Yesterday when it was my day off I went with Brito down to El Medano.
We went to a restaurant that has a terrace down at the ocean.
The weather was just perfect and we had a lovely relaxing day.

Mi disfruting a glass of local vino blanco.

A snack of camarones is perfect a sunny day like this.

Brito jumped into the ocean to have a swim tour.

Somebody had thrown a pan into the water and the fishes seamed very hungry.
I decided to not have a swim at this place.

I asked Brito to pose for some photos...

After a while he turned out to become a tourist attraction!
A tourist (?), on the other side of the bay, also
started taking photos of him.
She had something looking like a paparazzi camera but I think my
photos are looking better than hers...?
Please, tell me if you see him in some tourist brochure or advertising.
They will for sure have to pay!!!

The waves were rollin' all over him like a water massage.

We ordered some 'chopitos'. Oh, I just looove them!!!

Later on we moved over to the main beach and I could have a swim
without thousands of hungry fishes around me.

I tell you, It was a looovely day!!!
