Getting a Taste for Tenerife Wine

Meet Cho Juan (Sho Wahn) In Tenerife, a 'cho' is a wise old man, a village elder. Sadly, as in many things, the days of respecting the elderly for the experience they have to share and wisdom they have gathered over the years, have gone. Where once upon a time, the...

Tenerife Bus Service TITSA

Tenerife Morning Clouds

Able-Bodied Assumptions and Tenerife Toilets

You would think that by now we would be evolved enough to  everyone an equal seat at the table and not hustle off those who are different in some way to the darkest table near the toilet doors. Many years ago my mother volunteered at a local disabled organisation in...

School in Tenerife – Getting Report Cards

Notas Day It was 'notas' day yesterday; the day I had to go down to collect the kids' report cards for the past semester. In typical WTF fashion, the school had cunningly organised that all the teachers would commence group parent meetings at the same time of 4.00pm....

Monkey Park Tenerife

Because I have no doubt that wild animals are at their happiest  in their natural habitat I feel like a  dreadful hypocrite for recommending an animal park  of any kind. Even so, Monkey Park Tenerife is sort of a guilty pleasure and in my defence it does have a...

Complex Management by Committee

When people first move to Tenerife and rent in a complex or buy property which is contained within a complex, they can sometimes find that the community management is a little ... well ... complicated. Take my neighbour, for example.  When she and her husband moved...
