La Viña

This is how our wine plant looks now. 
We will probably not get grapes this year, but you never know!
It´s Brito who takes care of it. If I would it would probably die in a while like all my plants before.
Brito has "green fingers" like we say in Swedish, and all the flowers on our balcony grow with speed and enjoy the life. He,he! He even talks to them sometimes when he nurse them. I have heard it! 

Puerto De La Cruz Sept. 20, 2014

Again we spent our day and night off in Puerto de la cruz.
Last time was 2 weeks ago even when I have not been blogging about it.

this time we decided to take "a new road" to Puerto de la cruz.
We drove up the west coast of the island and then picked  a road that goes down from Tierra del Trigo to Los Silos.

Guarachico from above.

Before you start driving down you  also can watch Los Silos from above...

...and the most of the northern coast in the direction of Puerto de la cruz..

I took this photo to show you the road that is ahead. Looks almost like a snake!!!
This is where we are gonna drive! Imagine I have lived 10 years on Tenerife and never been here before! Tenerife is filled with "pearls" and it takes time to visit all the places.
Guess if I kept my breath!

I does not show how it is in real on a photo, but it many times looked like the road was disappearing.

 We made it!I mean the route down the mountain where it in many places was not much of protection fences from not driving the shortest way down  the valley.

 Me tasting the wine at Plaza del Charco..

 My first plate, typical Canary; Potaje de Berros. First time in life and I really like it! 
Must have it again!!!

Me and Brito enjoying the meal and the day off.

Tuesday September 23, 2014

We were crowded again last night. More dancers have arrived to the island the last days.
The sound is not so good on this video. It has got a sound of distortion and I´m not sure if it is because I was standing too close to the speakers or if the sound just was too load for the camera to record. My video file converter also crashed and I had to download a new one and it could also be that the new program have got some kind of bug or something so that it can´t handle the sound properly? I will check it out later, but it´s too late in the night now so I´ll  publish this  video now.

Thursday, Sept. 18, 2014

Last night was a good night again. Many dancers were in and
they were dancing all the time. 
New dancers do arrive  to the island every week but a sad thing yesterday was that it was the last night for some of the ones who arrived in the beginning of the month. 
It´s  at the moment like "welcome and  adios" all the time and that is how it´s going to continue during the whole season. That´s the life here on Tenerife. People come and go.

Anyhow, line dance teachers from England, Rick and Chris and Peter, have thought us 5 new dances during their stay;
Calm before the storm, Better times, Just another woman in love, Pianoman and Places.
Lovely dances! Thank you so much for taking time to share your knowledge and increase our dance repertoires.

Lewinski Sept 4 , 2014

Oh, the time is just disappearing and this video is already 4 days old.
I´m sorry I have been so busy that I have not been able to edit and publish it before.
Yes, I had my day off yesterday but we left for Puerto de la Cruz early in the morning and stayed at a hotel over night, so that´s why.

Anyhow...we are many more dancers now, than we were last week, and I think we can call this video the beginning of the line dance month, which we have in September every year. 
It´s so lovely to start up the season every autumn and see more dancers arriving every night.
In the springtime it´s the opposite. Then it´s goodbye and goodbye and goodbye every night.
