wo Britons took the T top prizes in the highly Maspalomas Gay Pride 2013 successful Gay Pride de Mr Gay in the Gran Canaria’s Gay Pride Week went to 26 year old Ashley Rogers and the Miss Lesbian title went to 22 year old Saskia Codrington. The international appeal of the event was underlined by the other winners on the podium. Ashley was accompanied by second placed Villy Bulgarou of Bulgaria and in third place, Italian born Dennis Simerano, whilst Saskia’s companions were Las Palmas native Alejandra Socorro and Londoner, Carmen Zapatero in second and third places respectively. The events attracted massive participation from the LGBT community, including an estimated 50,000 of gay tourists from beyond Gran Canaria. According to the organisers, Saturday’s highlight event, the Gay Pride Parade through the streets of the resort, drew around 60,000 people, who endured scorching temperatures of 32ºC and above to take part in or watch the colourful four hour procession. The local tourism authorities say that 60 per cent of

British Pride holiday accommodation in Maspalomas was taken up by visitors who arrived expressly for Gay Pride week. The island’s biggest paper La Provincia, devoted the vast majority of its Saturday supplement to the programme of Rainbow events and activities and the coverage included the interesting statistic, from the local hotel and tourism federation, that throughout the year gay tourism now accounts for a full 12 per cent of Gran Canarias’ holidaymakers.

he controversy over the need to renew ‘residence’ certificates issued to EU nationals living here full-time shows no signs of letting up, even though the confusion appears largely limited to the south of Tenerife, a point not lost on the Spanish authorities we consulted directly on the matter last week. Much has been published on the subject recently in local English language papers and/or posted on popular ex-pat forums. The information has sent many rushing to their local police station to renew their ‘green sheet’ which is, strictly speaking, a Registration Certificate as opposed to a certificate of residence - before it expires, even though no such instruction or expiry date appears on the crucial piece of paper, which replaced the photobearing residence cards that were scrapped for EU nationals when Spain was forced to fall into line with EU rules several years ago. It remains unclear where the initial information that triggered the renewal rush came from. To confuse the situation even further, the details posted by people narrating their experiences after dutifully turning up (and often queuing for ages) at police stations have varied greatly depending on the location. Britons attending the station in Playa de Las Américas

report that they have apparently been told that the fiveyear renewal requirement does exist and the consequences of failing to renew on time can be serious, including applicants being forced to begin the process all over again, only this time with the added requirement that they must furnish proof that they have the means to support themselves and are covered by appropriate health insurance. Others have been told by various sources, including it seems at the station,

that there is also a legal obligation to exchange the A4size sheet of paper for the more recent card-size certificate, again with “dire consequences” in the event of non-compliance. However, over in Puerto de la Cruz, a written enquiry by this newspaper to the Extranjeros office at the station produced the reply that “as far as we know, there have been no changes to the regulations. Certificates of permanent residence issued to EU nationals are valid indefinitely”. Very clear but not much help to those who believe the information which is circulating like wildfire and do all they can to find the time to go along to their police station just in case. In a bid to resolve the confusion, we contacted the main Extranjería Office in Santa Cruz, whose telephone number is given on their of-

ficial website as 922 999 000, although this turns out to be the general number for the Spanish government’s official representation here in Tenerife , known as the Subdelegación de Gobierno. Extranjería is allegedly accessible by pushing the number ‘8’ button on the menu once you are through, but (at least on the days we tried) instead of a friendly official able to deal with your residence enquiry, the extension turns out to be a fax which only wants to ‘talk’ to machines of its own kind. Thankfully, Damaris Ferraz, the Press Officer at the main Spanish government office in the Canaries, proved more helpful and she quickly put us in touch with senior officials at the Interior Ministry in Madrid, who listened carefully to what we had to say and seemed genuinely puzzled by the reports doing the rounds here. They too were surprised to discover that only Tenerife appears to be affected by the renewal “obligation” and promised to check all the current regulations to give a definitive response as soon as possible. This they duly did, within 24 hours, first by telephone and then - at our request - in

writing. The answer was issued by the Comisaría General de Extranjería y Fronteras, i.e. the HQ of all the departments in police stations that issue residence cards for non-EU citizens and registration certificates for EU citizens etc. In response to two specific questions, namely, a) Are holders of A4 Registration Certificates legally obliged to exchange them for the newer card format? and b) Are EU citizens holding Registration Certificates obliged to renew them after five years, even though there is no expiry date indicated? the following was received (in Spanish but now translated into English for readers): “Dear Sir, Please find attached the reply to your query. Kind regards Comisaría General de Extranjería y Fronteras” “The relevant EU legislation is transposed in [Spain’s] Royal Decree 240/2007, of February 16, which regulates entry, free movement and residence in Spain for citizens of EU Member States and of the countries of the European Economic Area. The Royal Decree complies with the provisions of Directive 2004/38/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 29 2004 on the right of citizens of the Union and their family members to move and reside freely within the territory of the Mem-

ber States. Under Article 7 of the Royal Decree, all Union citizens or citizens of another state which is party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area have the right to reside in Spain for a period exceeding three months providing they meet certain conditions. They are obliged to apply in person to the Aliens Office or police station in their intended place of residence to be included in the Central Register of Foreign Nationals (RCE), which is managed by the Directorate General for Police. “Following their inclusion in the Central Register, the Directorate General for Police will issue them with a Certificate of EU Citizen Registration, as proof that they have complied with the registration requirement. This Certificate does not have an expiry date. However, in accordance with Article 10 of the Royal Decree, a person who has resided legally in Spain for a continuous period of five years can be issued, upon request, with a Certificate attesting to their right to live permanently in Spain and wording to that effect shall appear on the Certificate.

“In the light of the above and in response to the specific questions you raise: “There is no requirement to exchange a Certificate of EU Citizen Registration in A4 format for the new cardsized version currently being issued. “As stated above, there is no requirement to renew an EU Citizen Registration Certificate five years from the date of issue. However, following five years of continuous residence, upon request the holder can be issued with a new Certificate containing the words ‘permanent resident’.” Needless to say, we have politely suggested that this unequivocal response should be forwarded through internal channels to all police stations, not least to Playa de Las Américas, to make sure everyone is singing from the same hymn-sheet. As with much bureaucracy in this part of the world, the right hand does not always know what the left hand is doing, which can prove an infuriating experience for those caught in the confusion. However, as the senior officials in Madrid who dealt with our enquiry pointed out, it is better to take the time and trouble to clarify matters with the proper authorities rather than take ‘advice’, however well-intended, as gospel. No doubt we will hear more about this time-consuming issue in the weeks and months to come.

Change to passport service for Brits

B

ritish nationals in Spain wanting to apply for a new passport are advised of an important change in the way they will need to make applications. From May 13, all applications will need to be sent directly to the Identity & Passport Service (IPS) in Belfast in the United Kingdom, instead of the regional passport processing hub in Madrid. All the necessary information about the new passport application process, including a new IPS overseas application form, can be found atwww.gov. uk/overseas-passports. Andy Hamilton, head of the regional passport processing centre in Madrid, says, “In real terms, all that this means is that British nationals living in Spain now need to send their applications to a different address. “Current passport processing times remain the same. If you are renewing your passport, you should allow at least

four weeks from the date the fee is taken and all the correct documentation has been received. “If you are applying for the first time

or you are replacing a lost or stolen passport, you should allow at least six weeks.” The only other change is that the current passport helpline call charges are being removed. Instead of paying for a premium rate phone line, customers will now only have to pay for the cost of a call to the UK. British nationals who lack internet access or want advice are able to call the IPS Customer Service Centre on +44 (0) 300 222 0000. People who need to travel urgently but whose normal passport is unavailable should contact their nearest British Consulate via 902 109 356 or email: info.consulate@fco.gov.uk. Your local Consulate may be able to issue an Emergency Travel Document to help you travel. This change comes just seven years after the introduction of biometric passports when presumably machinery to process the new high-tech passports was updated or replaced around the world.

For over seven years now, the third lane planned for each carriageway of the TF1 motorway between San Isidro and Playa de Las Américas has been doing the rounds of government offices, but the materialisation of the project seems little closer. The first formality was completed back in November 2005 when the regional government published the public tender to design the widen-

ing of the 20km stretch, including the building of several new bridges and slip roads to connect various fast-growing parts of the south, such as Las Chafiras and Parque de La Reina, to the island’s busiest road. However, little has been done to take the project forward since then and many wonder whether it will ever become a reality. The official version is that the plans have been fully approved but the mandatory Environmental Impact Assessment has thrown up a series of issues that need to be addressed before any actual work can begin on the stretch, which will cost over €120 million. The race is on to see which will be slower: the new hospital for the south or the extra motorway lane.

An edition of Interviú earlier this month included as its main feature an examination of the plight of dozens of areas of the island where the battle to save homes built on the shore continues. As reported here, the strict application of the 1988 Coasts Law by the Ministry of the Environment means that all privately owned properties within a 100 metre distance of the shore could be under threat of demolition for invading public land. Areas affected include the Cho Vito district of Candelaria, where bulldozers were sent in before

Their main mission will be to help with reconstruction but also to consolidate security in the run-up to the elections, due to take place in 2014. Officer in charge of the contingent, Colonel Luis Suárez from the Canarian Light Infantry, is no newcomer to Afghanistan, having been there back in 2005. He said he sympathised greatly with the families but insisted that they had “nothing to be concerned about”, as the situation has improved greatly in recent times. “I have four children myself and I know from experience that the tour to Afghanistan inspires concerns.

TUI criticises Cabildo

Maspalomas hotel block The controversy over the last-minute blocking of plans for the big new RIU hotel in Maspalomas looks set to extend well beyond the resort.

RIU are said to be furious at the late intervention by the Gran Canaria Cabildo, which rushed through protection status for much of the area around the Oasis Maspalomas Hotel, which the hotel chain closed recently to demolish to make way for a much bigger and more modern one. The decision to protect the surrounding palm groves has effectively put paid to

the plans and RIU responded immediately with a vow to switch up to €50 million in investment to its Tenerife hotels. The spat has already triggered negative reaction from holiday giant TUI, which had high hopes for the new RIU hotel and says that the Cabildo decision is “hard to understand”. Senior TUI boss Arjan Kers said the unexpected development was “a massive disappointment” and hinted that the holiday group might reconsider its loyalty to Gran Canaria. “We have been committed to the island for a long time and had pressed RIU to raise the quality of its Gran Canaria hotels” said Kers, adding that the Cabildo had “blocked a major investment” which would have produced a more modern hotel in keeping with client demands. “This is a big blow for RIU as they had already notified travel agents and other clients that they were closing for a time. A year’s work finalising the project and obtaining the required planning permission has been wasted” said the TUI boss.

PROPERTY CONFISCATION AMENDMENT

News in Brief >>

Crisis cuts deep

Energy fall The demand for energy dropped dramatically throughout the archipelago during the first four months of this year. The island most affected is La Palma where there was an 8.3 per cent drop in electricity requirements, the biggest reduction that has been registered anywhere in the Canaries in the last 15 years. The figures released by electricity company Endesa, comparing statistics with the same period in 2012, show similar declines in other areas. Lanzarote suffered the next highest reduction, at 6.5 per cent, followed by La Gomera with 6.2. Tenerife came next at 5.5 per cent, then El Hierro (4.6), Gran Canaria (4.2) and last, and least, Fuerteventura with a 2.5 per cent decrease. The dramatic fall in requirements appears to be due to two worrying reasons. The first is the reduction of economic activity and the second is the necessity of households to continue cutting costs as the crisis persists.

Approval anticipated

he Canarian government hopes to have its new legislation regarding the expropriation of empty repossessed proper ties in force by the summer. Following the lead taken by Andalusia, the government is to amend the region’s Housing Law to give itself powers to ‘confiscate’, for a period of three years, homes taken back by banks from mortgage defaulters if the properties remain empty.

The repossessed homes will be rented out very cheaply to low-income families, with priority given to those who have lost their own homes due to bank foreclosures. It is hoped that the final touches to the amended legislation will be completed very shortly, after which it will be submitted for Parliamentary approval. A few details have still to be ironed out, however, such as who will be liable to pay the local IBI property tax in

respect of homes expropriated for the scheme.

La Palma >

T

he earliest human settlements found here on the site of the ancient Tedote, today’s La Palma, date back to the first half of the first millenium BC, when a succession of emigratory waves of North Africans came across to settle the island. Sites such as Morro de Las Nieves and La Erita are fascinating to visit to get an impression of the presence of these early settlers, whose rock carvings, vessels, irrigation channels and cave paintings are still visible. The city was originally called Villa del Apurón and was founded by Alonso Fernández de Lugo, on 3 May, 1493. Its port served as a connecting point on the new routes opening to the Americas. As the seat of La Palma’s power, Santa Cruz naturally became prominent in the economic and socio-political development of the island and, as pre-conquest native populations mixed with their Spanish conquerors and other Europeans, the Palmero, or La Palma islander, evolved. Santa Cruz de La Palma’s history is usually discussed in pre, and post, 1553 periods, due to events that took place on 21 July that year, when islanders were surprised by an invasion of seven hundred French corsairs. The capital was seized and held by the invaders for ten days, who then destroyed it before being expelled. Present day visitors can enjoy the very pleasing consequences, as the capital was well planned and beautifully rebuilt after the French invasion, and is largely intact today. Thanks to its boat building and silk industries, Malvasia wine exports and expanding, lucrative commerce in linking Old and New Worlds, the capital thrived. It was the first place in all of Spain’s considerable empire to introduce elections and, subsequently, democracy, predating the American

Santa Cruz de La Palma is the picturesque capital ‘city’ of the island of La Palma and is located on the east coast of the island, along an old lava flow from the Caldereta volcano.

independence and constitution. Amongst other Canary Islanders, La Palma’s islanders are reputed to be excessively proud of their status as Palmeros. The probable reason for this is there in the capital’s history. This tiny city really

does have a r e m a r k a bl e story of importance and power, given its isolated position on a small island in the Atlantic, off the west coast of Africa. Its geographical position is, of course, very much the same as the other six Canary Islands, but its successful commercial ex-

ploitation of the particular role it invented and played as bridge between the Old and New Worlds was unparalleled. It was, for example, involved in international, trans-Atlantic trade with regular scheduled passenger and cargo services when neighbouring La Gomera was still largely cut off from the outside

world. In 1558, this little capital was, incredibly, the third most important port in the world, due to its vital role in trade with ‘the Indies’, or Americas. It’s an interesting and attractive place to visit, especially this year as it celebrates the five hundred and twentieth anniversary of its founding, coinciding with the May Holy Cross fiestas. Santa Cruz is of course Holy Cross in English. Retired teacher Nelsa González Cabrera made an emotional start to the Fiestas de Mayo proceedings, with a rousing speech stressing the value of this month of special events, “We feel more vital, renewed and disposed to open our hearts to love others,” she declared, in an opening event that had been moved inside the town hall due to bad weather and was interrupted many times by standing ovations from the crowds. Doña Nelsa, as she is known by the hundreds of ex pupils she taught during her four decades of teaching, went on to talk about, “The great beauty of the

city in both human and aesthetic terms,” stressing that the, “Fiestas De Mayo rest on two pillars. One is religious practice and the other is the response of the town over the centuries, which has been one of effort, responsibility and great creativity - qualities which the men and women of this island possess in abundance.” Roars of approval met her words. To say that the programme of events celebrating the capital’s anniversary is ample is an understatement. Anyone living in the Canaries should go at least once and this year the ferry companies are offering serious reductions. Until 1 June, there is such a wide range of cultural, musical and artistic treats on offer, everything from classical music to Cuban Son; modern theatre to traditional tenderetes with folk dance and song; fireworks to decorated crosses; tapas routes to gourmet feasts and street markets to children’s festivals, that to list them all here would be impossible.

Market manhandling Santa Cruz’s normally placid Sunday fleamarket (Rastro) was the scene of an ugly confrontation recently. The fracas ended with the culprits in police cells and facing a court appearance. The clash between police and a group of South American street musicians made the local headlines, with each side accusing the other of being to blame for the incident. The row started when an elderly couple of traders complained to police that their allocated patch in the market had been taken by the musicians who refused to move. Officers are said to have tried to deal with the dispute discreetly at first, but tensions mounted as others became involved and pushing and shoving ensued. Reinforcements were called and the four street musicians were eventually restrained and taken away. Stallholders said afterwards that the four regularly occupied the spots of others, while the president of the Rastro traders association confirmed that they had “caused trouble” on previous occasions. However, the official version of events is disputed by the musicians, who say they were harassed and insulted by police and even invited to go back to their countries. “Offensive comments about our origins were made, particularly by one of the policemen. A colleague filmed everything on his mobile phone but it has been taken from him” they said afterwards.

Unruly revenge

Ram and chase Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, as the old saying goes, and the ex-boyfriend of a young Santa Cruz woman would probably agree. The man’s BMW car was nearly written off by his former sweetheart after a late night argument when the pair coincided in a city nightspot. Police were called to the scene of the row between the ex-couple after the woman was seen repeatedly ramming her VW Polo into the side of the BMW, having already been heard by witnesses threatening to “set it on fire”. The 23-year-old woman was detained for questioning and a background check revealed that she had been banned from driving until September. She was released into the custody of a friend pending further inquiries into the incident but was spotted by the same patrol 10 minutes later at the wheel of her car. A dramatic chase ensured through the streets of Santa Cruz but she managed to give her police pursuers the slip.

German tourism market

Gran Canaria revisited

Ideal visitors

Loyalty rewarded T

A

enerife’s tourism authorities have taken advantage of the news that FTI, Germany’s fourth biggest tour operator, is to launch flights to the island.

Danish couple recently celebrated their 62nd holiday in Gran Canaria. Gran Canaria rightly prides itself on the number of repeat visitors it has built up over the years, but even by the island’s standards the Danish couple’s record takes some beating. Watchmaker John Otteson and his wife Karen first holidayed on their favourite island back in 1982 and their dedication, after clocking up an incredible 62 visits, has not gone unrecognised. During their latest jaunt the Ottesons were honoured by the Tourist Board for their unswerving loyalty. The Copenhagen couple were the guests of honour at a ceremony in the Reina Isabel Hotel in Las Palmas, where they received a bouquet of flowers, a collection



of CDs by the Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra and a plaque commemorating their fantastic achievement. The island’s tourism chiefs described them as Gran Canarias’s best ambassadors in their home country. The couple has made the long trip from Denmark four times in 12 months during several

The beauty of Gran Canaria is a constant draw for the couple

years and they have already booked their holiday for next Christmas. Karen surprised the hosts of the ceremony by giving her acceptance speech in Spanish and confessed that she had been taking private lessons with a Cuban teacher of late.

The connections, which will fly from several cities as of autumn of this year, underline the importance of the German market for the island. The new flights from Munich, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Cologne, Dusseldorf and Leipzig will bring an average of 1200 additional holidaymakers from the country every week from November onwards and tourism bosses are delighted with the decision. With 600,000 holidaymakers, Germans are the third most important nationality for Tenerife, after Britons and Spaniards, and the profile of the typical

holidaymaker is much sought after by the industry. According to the Cabildo’s detailed surveys, the average German tourist travels as a couple, is aged 47 and earns around 54,000 euros, considerably more than other visitors to the island. Almost half of all the Germans who come here for a holiday

repeat the experience, making them among the most loyal of all tourists. Importantly for the sector, 80 per cent do more than just soak up the sun while here and actively seek other activities. High on their list of leisure interests are walking and visits to museums and historical buildings.

We finally made time to visit La Gomera after the shocking fires of last summer and were delighted to find it still stunningly beautiful as reported.

Agando, a landmark rock formation just off the highway, but elsewhere there are still spectacular views over to Tenerife and Teide, sharp ravines with tiny hamlets nestled along the bottom, impressive cliffs and hillsides full of Canarian palm trees. After a late picnic lunch in La Laguna Grande, which has legends

of witches and now boasts a tiny visitors’ centre, we headed for the road down to our chosen base for our stay, the Hotel Gran Rey in Valle Gran Rey which is reached by a twisting road running down the ravine with a wealth of lookout points over the magnificent landscapes. This relatively small, superbly run,

and very friendly beachfront hotel is without doubt an excellent choice for anyone who wishes to really discover the interior of the island or the ocean. It also has a very high reputation and has received numerous awards for its environmental policies, as well as having modern rooms, comfortable beds and an ample and varied buffet meal service. On this occasion, the boat was pushed out and we had one of their superior rooms, thoroughly enjoying the extra space to stretch out in and added extras after time spent walking though the trails of the island. Views are either of the mountains or the sea and the sunsets are some of the most spectacular you will ever experience. We awoke to the sight and sound of the waves on the beach, some 30 metres from the balcony, and enjoyed an enormous leisurely breakfast in the balconied top floor restaurant before strolling along the beachfront past the Charco del Conde to Playa de Vueltas. Then it was into the car to check-out another area tied in with witchcraft, the Chorros de Epina. Back up the long road in the ravine and a left turn in the direction of Vallehermoso, the famous Chorros are not very far along the top road. Nothing is very far, however the geography of the island with its striated ravines (think of a lemon squeezer) means journeys – and hikes – often

down the valley, is a tiny restaurant with excellent prices – La Vista. Well used to walkers, they usually have a large log fire on the go and a wicked home-made liqueur on offer called montañero. Specialising in Canarian food, a favourite dish is the watercress soup which is served in wooden bowls with optional gofio (toasted, ground cereals) to sprinkle on it – very welcome after a stroll through the woods! If the weather permits, there are long tables and log seats on the balcony, whilst the inside tables enjoy panoramic windows to make sure you don’t miss any of the views. It’s a grand way to end a very full day’s tourism before heading back for a rest and the hotel’s very generous buffet. It was a short visit meaning that the following day we were heading back to Tenerife, but there was still time for a little sightseeing. After

Parking on the top road we passed the tiny San Isidro hermitage and followed the instructions on the sign at the Chorros to discover the way to our true loves! Following the road, we drove through Vallehermoso, past another famous landmark Roque Cano and more ravines and hillsides filled with palm trees, heading for the Juego de Bolas visitors’ centre in Las Rosas, Agulo. It’s a small centre but gives a very good idea of the history, geography and culture of the island,

particularly the guanche (original island dwellers) inheritance, and they also have regular exhibitions of La Gomera’s curious and distinctive whistling language. The centre is just on the border of the Garajonay National Park: a Unesco World Heritage Site and an enclave of the endemic laurisilva with its characteristic hanging moss and earthy scent. We made for El Cedro and a favourite restaurant and camping ground. There, in the south east of the national park, at the top of a ravine with fabulous views

another great breakfast and a fond farewell from the Hotel Gran Rey staff we took a different road out of the valley, heading towards El Cercado, a small centre of the ceramics cottage-industry on the island. Pots and dishes are still hand-made in the traditional way using a lot of original guanche designs and methods handed down over the centuries. Well worth stopping in for a look and a great place to buy authentic souvenirs for yourself or gifts for friends and family. Just along the road is the unusual local church and the monument to the Gomeran whistlers. A visit to the Alto de Garajonay, the highest point in the island at 1,487 metres and a site of sanctuary, as well as religious and historical importance to the guanches, was stymied by the weather. What should have been amazing, unhindered panoramic views of almost the whole island, as well as El Hierro, Tenerife, and even Gran Canaria and La Palma on a very clear day, was a complete whiteout with mist. However the panels that are sited up there are very interesting and still worth a visit. We stopped at the monument to

the Sacred Heart overlooking the port of San Sebastián and visited the Parador hotel on the cliff top, an old converted Canarian mansion with views over the port and sea and finally to the little Playa de la Cueva next to the ferry port and its extravagant and attractive torch look out point. We returned a little sadly as the visit was so short and there is so much more to see and visit such as the gofio mills, the famous organ pipes and the giant lizards, to name but a few. However, we also returned comforted in the knowledge that so very much of the island is untouched, beautiful and as worth visiting as it ever was, especially those many kilometres of unique and glorious tracks and trails.

Spain’s anti-tax fraud success

By Bill Blevins, Financial Correspondent, Blevins Franks

E

uropean governments have been stepping up their crackdown on tax evasion as part of their efforts to raise revenue to bring down their budget deficits. The Spanish authorities, in particular, have raised their game over recent years, implementing a number of new measures to find those who are not declaring all their income and assets as required under Spanish tax law. Their biggest recent measure is of course the new obligation to report all assets held outside Spain. Modelo 720 had to be submitted by the end of April if you were resident in Spain last year. This is a significant

development in Spain, and it will reap rewards for the government over the years to come, but in the meantime the tax office has other tools it has been using with success. The Spanish government has released data on the results of its fraud prevention and anti-tax fraud measures in 2012. The measures led to a 10.1 per cent increase in the total revenues attributed to the fight against tax fraud, with the total income from these measures standing at €11.52 billion for the year. The tax office noticeably increased inspection activity in relation to new sources of information, such as the transfer of currency to countries that are no longer considered tax havens. Another key source of information was the data provided by electricity companies on consumption. This helped them track down undeclared leases

Hacienda is checking electricity bills to find undeclared lettings

and secondary residences. Electricity companies are now obliged to provide information to the Hacienda (tax office) regarding the electricity consumption of every property in Spain.

We warned that the authorities would be able to use this data to determine if a property which is declared as empty is in fact being rented out or used for business purposes. Analysis of the data

has led to 4,700 investigations on rented properties last year. The authorities can also use the electricity data to catch people who are living in Spain permanently but have not registered for, nor been paying, tax in Spain. Looking ahead, Spain’s new anti-fraud law will be the fundamental pillar in the tax office control strategy in 2013. General guidelines were published in the Official State Gazette in March. One of the priorities will be to analyse new information on goods and accounts overseas. The tax office will look at taxpayers who did not submit Modelo 720, but who appear to conduct transactions abroad that imply that they do have hidden assets and rights outside Spain’s borders. It is important to understand and comply with all the Spanish tax regulations if you are resident

in Spain. The same applies if you are not resident but own property here or receive an income from Spain. Any tax planning you use needs to be fully legitimate, and you should seek advice from a tax advisory firm like Blevins Franks on what would be effective for you. Summarised tax information is based upon our understanding of current laws and practices which may change. Individuals should take personalised advice.

Aviation disaster

A

t the end of April the anniversar y of the Dan Air crash at Los Rodeos North Tenerife airport was commemorated in North Tenerife. Immediately following the 11.00am Eucharist at All Saints Church in Puerto de la Cruz, a short memorial service was held at the Memorial Rose Garden. The prayers were led by Rev. Mike Smith and this year the congregation was joined by members of a family who lost their mother and father in the crash. It was, as ever, a moving and poignant occasion.

EDITION 695 :: 17/05/2013 - 30/05/2013 :: ISLAND CONNECTIONS

Time to remember

Dan-Air was an independent airline based in the United Kingdom. On April 25, 1980, one of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boeing 727â&#x20AC;&#x201C;46s crashed whilst preparing to land after a long charter flight from Manchester. Horrifically, flying in cloud, the aircraft turned in the wrong direction when asked to take a holding pattern and flew into the forest on mount La Esperanza. The aircraft was completely destroyed and all 146 passengers and crew were killed. Sadly, it came all too soon after the worst

aviation disaster in history which took place on March 27, 1977, when two Boeing 747 passenger aircrafts collided on the runway of Los Rodeos Airport, killing 583 people.

embers of the Puerto de la Cruz All Saints Parish congregation were recently joined by friends from the south Chaplaincy to celebrate St Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day in the church of San Jorge in Santa Cruz (formerly the Anglican Church of St George).

Saint George was born around 280 AD in Greece and became an officer in the Roman army. Well known,

The Feast day is also celebrated in the Community of Aragon, when they remember the Battle of Alcoraz during which St George is said to have appeared at a critical moment for the Christian Army, helping them win the battle. In Catalonia Saint Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day has echos of Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and is also known as the Day of the Rose and, much later, as the Day of the Book. Gifts are exchanged between loved ones and colleagues and in many areas of Valencia the day is also dedicated to the

The service was led by Rev John Adams, the locum from the south, whilst Rev. Mike Smith played the organ and preached. All were pleased to be joined by Vice Consul Helen Keating who is a friend of both churches. Afterwards around 30 celebrants had lunch together in a local restaurant and pledged to get together again over the summer for a joint Songs of Praise service at All Saints. A very good day was had by one and all.

tions include a parade with traditional Moorish and Christian soldiers, but the core of the activities focuses mainly on the dragon slaying legend.

amongst other things, for the tale of Saint George and the Dragon, the earliest documented mention of him in England comes from the venerable Bede (c. 673â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 735). His influence spread

far around the world and Saint Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day is celebrated by various Christian churches as well as individual countries and cities. In Spain he is patron saint of CĂĄceres where celebra-

here is a rare opportunity to see two of the Canary Island’s greatest groups at once coming up soon. Top folk groups Los Sabandeños and Los Gofiones will play together in several exceptional concerts in Tenerife and Gran Canaria.

Traditional music in the Canaries is represented by many fine names, but these two male choir folklore groups are by far the best known. Los Sabandeños are based in Tenerife and Los Gofiones in Gran Canaria. Through their lyrics and songs both groups have opened out the traditions of the Islands to a much wider audience over

a period of almost five decades and, although quite similar, during this time the groups have maintained very separate identities, whilst both equally forming a part of the islanders’ collective consciousness. Although they have shared many joint appearances, for some time now both ensembles have been working on the idea of combining their talents and voices and this double-bill will provide an unforgettable show that will also serve as a symbol of union between the islands. A number of songs especially written for these appearances will be performed, as well as many old favourites. In total there will be around seventy performers on stage

roperty purchases by foreigners now account for 8.12 per cent of the market, the same as before the crisis. If something good has come out of the crisis, it’s that the prices have been cut so much that to speak of buying a house and a bargain in the same sentence is no longer science fiction. This is the reason why all

the statistics published so far ratify the notable increase of the number of foreigners again choosing Spain as the destination for their vacation home. According to the property registrars, 8.12 per cent of the purchases in 2012 were made by foreigners, mainly for tourism purposes. This compares with 6.04 per cent in 2011 and 4.24 per cent in

2009. The number of transactions by foreigners last year means a return to precrisis 2007 levels.

What kind of property are foreigners looking for? The British continue to be the biggest of the foreign home buyers in Spain,

accounting for 16.63 per cent of all the purchases, although less than the 23.4 per cent of 2010. The second and third place in the classification is less clear with the French at 9.96 per cent and the Russian market, which has increased in a very short time to take the third slot at 9.62 per cent (overtaking the Germans and, most importantly, a growing demand). Although there

Top of the list are the Dutch where 58.61 per cent choose new properties, followed by the Russians with 56.82 per cent, Swedes with 54.69 per cent, Belgians with 52.96 per cent, Norwegians with 52.83 per cent and the British with 52.1 per cent. The better-off foreigners also tend to choose larger properties, those of over 100 square metres. The Dutch with 49.59 per cent of purchases, Norwegians with 43.46 per cent, Swiss with 43.04 per cent, Russians with 40 per cent and the Danes and Germans with over 36 per cent.

As for that classic favourite, location by regions, almost one in four, 24.95 per cent choose to buy in the Balearics, the second favourite is our own Canary Islands with 22.11 per cent, then Valencia at 18.01 per cent, Murcia with 11.24 per cent, Catalonia at 9.34 per cent and Andalusia with 8.86 per cent. If we look at the most popular provinces Alicante represented 33.39 per cent of the purchases, followed by Tenerife on 27.19 per cent and Gerona at 25.35 per cent. The registrars conclude, “Never has Spain demonstrated such a clear tendency to become a residential tourist destination for foreigners with their own properties”.

Property Feature ::

Luckily, in the south of Tenerife, one of the most popular areas in the Canary Islands at the moment, there are plenty of wonderful towns and villages to choose from so we decided to take an in-depth look at each of them. All of them share the wonderful benefits of Atlantic views and nearby beaches, yet they also have their own individual attractions.

Property wise, there are a number of options, from one bedroom apartments through to exclusive housing projects, and in this section one in particular stands out above the rest.

t is vital to get it right first time if you are buying, so it’s important to spend plenty of time carefully checking out each potential area before committing yourselves.

In the last two editions we covered the two most northerly towns of the Costa Adeje region and here we are heading closer to the heart of the area into La Caleta.

La Caleta

At only eight kilometres from Las Américas and Los Cristianos and 25 minutes from the south airport, it is perfectly situated. The old part has managed to keep its charm, whilst the newer section, being one of the later developments, has been constructed with foresight and style. Wide tree-lined avenues abound, many of the building projects have been executed with an eye for local style, and the whole area exudes a luxurious, yet quaint, feel. In the old town still stand the original fish restaurants which even now attract customers from afar. Balanced right on the water’s edge they offer fine food at reasonable prices in an unbeatable setting. Back in bygone days this area was where the fishermen brought their boats in and housewives would gather to buy their wares and pass some time with their friends and neighbours. The tiny harbour was also used by boats to transport farmer’s goods up and down the

The old part of La Caleta retains its traditional charm Credit: Second Home Tenerife

In the 1980s and early 90s when development of the coastal area of Adeje began in earnest La Caleta, which means ‘the cove’ was still a one street fishing village with all the charm that implies. It stood on its own along an undeveloped and beautiful area of coastline that has since become the perfect setting for the fabulous range of hotels and residential areas that can now be found there.

instruction centre provides the perfect setting for amateurs, leading national and international teams, and top Olympic level athletes to train in. The village also boasts surfing, scuba diving and sailing installations, and there are plenty of other sports and leisure activities within a stone’s throw.

And just up the road you will find top class hotels, such as the five star Sheraton Resort & Spa, and the prestigious Adeje golf course is only five minutes out of town. As well as drawing top sports players and enthusiasts alike from all Yet, despite the many updates, over the world, the Where better to eat fresh fish? beautiful greens and manicured gardens provide a lush sweeping backdrop to the whole area. In fact, La Caleta is building a fine reputation in the sporting world. The relatively new Tenerife Top Training professional

local traditions are still alive and thriving alongside the new international community, one of the most impressive being the Adeje Romería de San Sebastián when hundreds of pilgrims and animals gather outside the local church before a whole host of riders bring their mounts down to La Enramada Beach for a sea dip – an annual event that is watched by many thousands of fascinated spectators. And all year round those who prefer a restful afternoon are also well catered for as the Playa Enramada beach is easily accessible on foot and there are a number of fab-

Magnolia Golf Resort The Magnolia Golf Resort offers prime properties right next to the magnificent Adeje golf course. Built by Spanish multinational company Acciona Inmobiliaria it not only has the advantage of all that splendid greenery, but it is also situated at just 300 metres from the sea. The two and three-bedroom apartments have been built with the ultimate in materials and finishings, and are spacious, open, light and elegant - with marble flooring throughout giving grace and style to all the rooms. You can choose from ground floor homes with a garden, or duplexes with a large terrace, all of which sit in beautiful grounds with a solarium, gym, sauna, putting green and Jacuzzi, as well as adults and children’s swimming pools. As always, we recommend that when looking for property you deal with an estate agent you can trust: preferably one that has a proven track record and good reputation. For the La Caleta area Second Home Tenerife would be the ideal place to start. They are well established and, as well as the resort mentioned above, they have a number of other desirable La Caleta properties on their books. Simply call: 0034 670 390 821 or see: www.secondhometenerife. com. Last, but not least, the whole of the Costa Adeje district is internationally renowned for its unique microclimate: the temperature rarely falls below 16 degrees centigrade and usually sits comfortably in the mid twenties. So if that appeals, and you are looking for modern amenities and stylish and comfortable living in an area which still retains a traditional village feel, then La Caleta may well be the place for you.

hen buying a property overseas, using a specialist foreign exchange company can save you thousands. Overseas money transfers represent a very nice income stream for banks. But if you want to save a packet when you transfer money abroad, the best bet is to side step the high street lenders, opting instead for a specialist foreign exchange company. Buying a property in another country is likely to be the biggest single foreign exchange transaction you ever make. Even a small percentage saving on the pound can add up to thousands when you are purchasing your dream home abroad. Paul Collins, editor at BuyAssociation, believes it is vital that anyone buying property overseas uses a specialist currency provider to make sure they get the best rates. “High street banks won’t provide you with the best rates, so you need to go to a specialist,” he says. “It can make thousands upon thousands of pounds worth of difference in the price of a property. Even though it is possibly the least exciting bit of buying a property, it is hugely important.” Foreign currency exchange is a complex environment and one that is best left to the experts, according to the editor of the Overseas Property website. He adds: “It is a very specialised field and that is why it is best to use these specialists in very professional currency houses.” So how do forex companies offer such good deals? They purchase billions of pound’s worth of foreign exchange so they benefit from wholesale prices. They pass these savings on to you in the form of highly competitive commercial rates. Expertise counts for a lot and these firms specialise in a personalised service. For example, if you want to transfer your money with a specific

that you come to complete [the transaction].” However, just as many Brits are still looking for property in places like Spain, so too some are deciding to sell up and move back home. For sellers, forward contracts can also offer benefits. By locking in at a favourable exchange rate for a year, anyone selling their home can put it on the market safe in the knowledge that they will get the sterling amount they had banked on.

Case study

Beat the banks with a foreign exchange company

Currencies Direct rate and it is not the current one, forex dealers will watch the market on your behalf until the exchange rate is where you want it to be. They will give you a call to let you know the rate is the one you wanted and you can then decide to go ahead and make the transfer or not. Liz Rowlinson, editor at A Place in the Sun Magazine, thinks this is a service well worth using if you are looking to buy abroad. “When you buy a property abroad you should always use a currency broker to buy your currency. Forward buy it at a

certain favourable rate - you should get advice on that because you can save yourself lots of money in terms of financial planning,” she says. Once the rate is fixed, which you do by agreeing with the broker, you can then carry out what’s known as a spot transaction. Your sterling funds are transferred to the dealer, who then transfers this to the recipient in the foreign country where you are making the purchase. For large amounts, there is often no transfer fee, saving the buyer even more money. Another specialised product that makes a huge difference when buying or selling property overseas is something known as a forward contract. A forward contract means that you can lock in an exchange rate today which is valid for up to one year. For anyone buying a house worth hundreds of thousands of euros, this can make a big difference. It also provides peace of mind as you are protected against any fluctuations in the market.

For example, anyone buying in Spain will have seen the pound-euro exchange rate swing wildly over the last 12 months. In the last year, GBP/EUR has ranged from a high of 1.2879 last July to a low of 1.1340 this March. While the changes may appear quite small, for house buyers it quickly adds up. Paul Collins from BuyAssociation notes that currency fluctuations have a, “huge influence” on anyone buying property overseas, making a forward contract well worth considering. “It can have a huge impact in terms of the prices that people pay, which is why using specialist currency companies can be one of the most advantageous ways of investing overseas,” he explains. “As long as you know what you are investing in and when you will need that cash available, you can fix the exchange rate so that you know exactly how much it is going to cost you, regardless of the exchange rate fluctuations that might happen between the present time and the time

Mark Manley bought a holiday home in Estepona, Spain, to get away from the grey and wet UK weather. He researched his purchase on the internet and through magazines. “I also made visits to several countries and possible locations for purchase. I also had recommendations from friends and clients and finally I spoke to a recommended and reliable agent with a lot of experience,” he explained. Thanks to this thorough approach, Mark found a property easily. The only problem came just before completion. “I learned that asking a UK bank to transfer money immediately is akin to asking for a free flight to the moon,” he said. To solve this problem, he turned to a forex company, Currencies Direct. “The team are fabulous and they are willing to give sound guidance on what is likely to happen to the currency rate in the next few days/ weeks,” said Mark, who estimates he saved £12,000 by using a specialist foreign exchange company. His advice: “Be aware of how currency fluctuations can massively affect how much you pay on purchase. You can save or lose a lot of money by agreeing to a completion or transfer at the right/wrong time.”

Gardening A-Z / PART I :: Sunflowers are composite

Rosemary is an evergreen shrub

Poinsettias have colourful bracts

rectly onto the plant you want to kill.

Corolla: this delightful word describes a flower’s petals. Cotyledon: this is a very grand name for those first leaves or leaf that emerges from a seed embryo as it germinates.

Conifers produce seeds in cones

are usually placed together in large numbers to provide a temporary display. The term is often synonymous with annual plants although can include perennials such as aubretia.

Gardening A-Z

Every science and art has its own language

Y

ou know what it’s like – you’re picking up some new seeds, watching your favourite gardening programme, or trying to fathom out what a new plant needs, but there are some words that seem to belong to a different language.

Abiotic: are things that are not (and never have been) alive. The abiotic factors in an environment include things such as sunlight, temperature and wind. Accent plant: this is one that is chosen in complete contrast to its surroundings making it a focal point of the garden.

Acid soil: these are soils which have a pH of less than seven. The pH stands for ‘potential of Hydrogen’ and is a scale denoting the acidity or alkalinity of water soluble substances. Many plants,

Biotic: is used to describe living things.

Bolting: is a premature and abrupt production of flowers and seeds. Lettuce is particularly prone to this. Bonsai: to produce these miniature trees the roots are clipped and growth buds are pinched off to reduce the plant’s size. Bract: this term refers to a modified leaf (i.e. one that isn’t solely dedicated to photosynthesis and transpiration as is the norm). For example, the beautiful poinsettias that are a regular sight here are composed of bright red bracts.

Worry not, the explanations below and in upcoming editions of Island Connections cover some of the most commonly used and most useful terms. Some you will probably know, others will be new, and some are there just for interest – they’re in everyday use, we all have a rough idea of what they signify, but it’s fascinating when you actually realise their full meaning. In this first article we will cover abiotic to exotic, via bolting, crowns and division: an enthralling journey through horticultural lingo.

Biennial: Plants take two years to complete their life cycle: they tend to grow only leaves during the first year and then produce flowers, fruit and seeds, after which it will die.

Bulbs: These reduced stems with overlapping scales that send out roots from the bottom are food storage for the plant. Cambium layer: is the area of trees and shrubs between the bark and inner wood where cells are busily dividing. Any damage to this part can seriously threaten the plant’s health.

Chlorophyll: This pigment is Unravel the mystery of gardening terms

for instance garlic, horseradish, coriander and lemon grass, have a distinct preference for acidic soils.

Aerate: this is where soil is loosened to improve oxygen levels for the roots.

Alkaline soil: this earth has a pH value of over seven. Soils in arid climates tend to be alkaline due to a high percentage of lime (calcium carbonate). If a soil is highly alkaline is can cause problems as certain essential nutrients, particularly iron and zinc, become unavailable to the plants. However, garden pinks, hardy carnations, various clematises and many others all

cope well with very alkaline soils.

Amendment: this is any material such as compost, lime and manure that is mixed with soil to improve its condition or balance pH levels.

Annual plant: these are ones that germinate and then die within only one growing season. Asexual reproduction: the art of creating more plants by cutting, grafting, or layering. Bare rooted: are plants which are sold without any soil surrounding the roots.

Bedding plants: are ones that

why plants are green! It is what enables them to absorb energy from light and, along with water and carbon dioxide, use it to make the sugars the plant feeds on.

Composite flower: A flower head composed of many small flowers. Sunflowers, dandelions and daisies all have this type of flowers. Compost: is decomposing matter, usually mixed with earth, which can be used as mulch, fertiliser, or to change the structure of a soil. Conifers: are plants that produce seeds in a cone, for instance the Canary Pine. Contact herbicides: are weed killers that have to be applied di-

Cross-pollination: is when a flower is pollinated from a completely different plant. Cultivars: are also known as cultivated varieties. They are new or hybrid plants that have been created by human intervention. These tend to be a little harder to grow for those new to gardening. Cutting-back: refers to decreasing the size of a plant, or the trimming of damaged roots and stems before transplanting. Crown: the uppermost branches of a tree. Dead-heading: is the removal of flower heads which are past their best to encourage more flowering or to ensure that a plant doesn’t produce seeds. Deciduous: these are plants that drop all their leaves at the end of the growing season. Division: this is a way of splitting plants that grow in a cluster – they can usually be carefully broken apart and then replanted separately. Dioecious: These are types that have only female flowers on one plant and male on another. Holly, juniper and pepper trees are all examples. Dwarf plants: despite the name, this does not refer to miniature plants: it simply means one that has been altered so that it grows smaller than it would naturally. Edging plants: are low growing plants that are generally used to form a border around a bed or path for example. Epiphytes: are the fascinating air plants, also known as Tillandsia. They don’t require soil and often grow on other plants. Evergreen: A plant which keeps its green foliage all year. Exotic: say this and images of resplendently colourful and tropical varieties pop to mind, but what it really refers to is any plant that is not native to an area but is now growing there.

EDITION 695 :: 17/05/2013 - 30/05/2013 :: ISLAND CONNECTIONS

Taller Don Diego Álvarez

Tasca treats By John

W

e are on our way to visit a restaurant that we had seen advertised. I am intrigued by the photograph of the proprietor who sports the most magnificent of moustaches. Will the food live up to the stupendous moustache? We turn off the autopista TF5 at J29 and make our way downhill towards the coast, to the La Quinta urbanisation. We pull up outside Taller Don Diego Álvarez, situated in a small parade cheek by jowl with the hotel there. It is nothing particular to look at from the outside, but we are all entranced as soon as we brave its portals. This looks to be a very attractive place to either eat in their Tasca or just to prop up the bar with a tapa and cold glass of wine. The waiter descends on us and we are seated at a nice table, on which are some stunning patterned charger plates, setting the tone for what, we trust, is to come. Although they are not, they look like V&B, and, as ex-hoteliers, we cannot resist turning them over to look for the manufacturer mark underneath, much to the consternation of the watching

staff who instantly whisk them away! There are three of us this evening, as we are accompanied by our old friend Peter, although, with his new knee, we perhaps should now call him our young friend. It is his first excursion since rising, akin to Lazarus, from his slab in the Bellevue. The menu is extensive, as we saw from the list outside, but, having been clocked as English, rather grubby and tired print-outs are brought

to us, sporting the usual mistranslations. Peter orders one of the specials of the day; fresh clams in a spicy chilli broth which are presented in a large earthenware bowl, the scent from which wafts across the table towards me, redolent of the sea. The clams are pronounced delicious, cooked just enough to open them before they turn all rubbery. My dish of chanterelle mushrooms and crispy bacon, also from the specials blackboard, come in a cream and brandy sauce, and

Taller Don Diego Álvarez Address: Urb. La Quinta, 38390 Santa Ursula, Tenerife. Reservations Tel: 922 300 866.

Open: Daily. Kitchen open from 12.00 to 24.00 Loo Score: 8/10 (extra point for that mouthwash)

I needed a lot of the excellent crusty bread to mop up all the sauce. Our waiter came with his apologies that the very local Arautava wine that we had chosen was not available, so we had to quickly order something else, which was a Viñatigo from just further along the coast, and which proved to be just as excellent. My wife and Peter had chosen the lamb cutlets but an apologetic waiter soon returned to the table to announce that they had none. Instead, he proposed a different cut of lamb. Sally accepted the offer (without being told that it was going to come in at some €5 more expensive) and Peter opted to share with me their other speciality, Arroz Caldoso, (€25.50 for two persons) which in this interpretation is a soupy rice concoction filled with chunks of seafood and shellfish. It is presented to us in a vast earthenware tureen almost big enough to swim in. The fish is cooked just right, again, just to

the point before the aforesaid rubber takes hold. The chef here clearly knows how to cook fish. Whilst the accompanying soup/broth might have been reduced a little to offer a tad deeper concentration of flavour, it was very acceptable. Sally’s lamb (accompanied very plainly by just chips) was tasty but too fatty even for her palate. We decided that it was expensive for what it was, and, for the price of €19.80 some fresh vegetables would not have gone amiss.

With all the extra bits and bobs, our bill came to €89.50 for the three of us. Not cheap, and not faultless, but all three of us unanimously agreed that we would go back there again. We had interes ting excursions to the loos on the way out. Small, petite, bijou, call them what you may, but they were clean and each, uniquely, sported a bottle of mouthwash with a pile of tiny plastic beakers for an individual palate cleansing rinse. A USP with a difference! Make of that what you will!

Wine Tastings  By Ana Ruiloba 

Dear friends

I

n the search for yet more interesting corners to satisfy the curiosity of our gourmet friends we once again find ourselves in Playa de las Américas. This time we are visiting La Kocina Gastro-Bar whose slogan is: Art, gastronomy and passion…. in another dimension.

By the main entrance you will find a bar dedicated to serving wines and cavas which are perfectly kept in bottles or the clever dispenser so that visitors are able to taste the various brands at their definitive temperature and humidity conditions, maintaining flawlessly intact their aromas, preserved by a sophisticated and innovative pressurisation system which uses nitrogen gas.

Open daily except Sunday from 5pm to midnight Tel. 679 617 224

There are young and barrelled whites, with varieties such as Albariño, Verdejo, Chardonnay, Viura, Malvasia aromática, Moscatel and Listan blanco; aromatic and fruity reds from

La Garnacha, Monastrell, Mencia, Prieto Picudo, Tempranillo, Tinta del País and Toro; along with an ample selection of Canarian wines. You can be taken on a journey through all of Spain’s wine growing lands without having to move from your chair – a complete luxury. Manager Francisco Fernández ‘Paco’ contributes his long experience in the business in the south of Tenerife to this new project, which is in collaboration with the Rincón del Arroz restaurant which has already been going for many years in Los Cristianos. To summarise the menu, it offers

Restaurant Zorro Chayofa

CARNE A LA BRASA all you can eat barbecue

BBQ - eat as much as you want for only 10,50 euros

Recently opened, this restaurant, which has a relaxed and fresh ambience, offers visitors a careful selection of Spanish wines (up to 50 kinds) and exquisite dishes created by skilled cook Carlos Fresco, whose recipes come with a distinct touch of seafood cuisine.

It is the ideal place to get together with friends, though terribly difficult to leave without always wanting to try just one more thing!

refreshing selections of salads; cheese boards accompanied by homemade jams; various soups and broths, such as lentils with vegetables and prawns; homemade fish preserves; cod tempura; squid; and fish croquettes. Meats and truffles are also available on this attractive menu which has prices that are very accessible. The

décor is amusing and pleasing, with sketches and literary quotes from the world of wine, all exhibited on huge blackboards, sharing the space with the work of local artists. Professionals from the sector also undertake weekly tastings and wine presentations at the restaurant: perfect for wine lovers.

Dear Emilia

Wearing the appropriate clothing/ hat and applying sunscreen are all basic measures to diminish risk

I’m 39 and I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. My father and another relative had colon polyps, should I be preoccupied? Thanks, Walter

Dear Walter, You should be attentive and proactive rather than preoccupied. As you know, colon polyps are growths located in the large portion of the intestine (colon). The cause of most polyps is not known but, thank God, most of them are benign. For a polyp to become malignant normally takes a few decades. They usually don’t cause symptoms and can stay clinically ‘silent’ for a while. As a matter of fact, often they are found during routine screening tests. Odd signs, uncharacteristic symptoms (bleeding from your rectum or a change in your bowel habits) should prompt you to talk to your trusted GP. It’s true that you are more likely to have colon polyps if: you are over 50, colon polyps run in your family, or you inherited a certain gene that causes you to develop

polyps. Experts recommend that everyone age 50 or older have a screening test to look for colon polyps. Finding and removing colon polyps can prevent colon cancer. Much can be done to prevent colon ailments since there a myriad of controllable factors. Sound nutritional habits are at the very top of the list. Make sure your GP prepares you an easy to follow nutritional strategy. Stay proactive, and focus your energy on the manageable factors. “Since I came to the White House, I got two hearing aids, a colon operation, skin cancer,

Dear Dr De La Flor, I’ve read that vitamin D supplements are necessar y but I’m worried about skin cancer. I wear a hat and habitually use sunscreen protection. Can I still get Vitamin D by sitting or walking outside? Thanks, Emilia

You pose an excellent question about gaining vitamin D by sunlight exposure vs. the risk of skin cancer. Sitting outside in sunlight will boost vitamin D production but your skin must be exposed and free of sunscreen. However, it should be your priority to reduce the risk of skin cancer, especially if you do have personal and/or family history or risk factors. Wearing the appropriate clothing/hat and applying sunscreen are all basic measures to diminish risk. If there’s a family histor y of skin cancer, you can use a vitamin D supplement to maintain adequate levels. You can easily get your vitamin D level checked by a blood test to know if you are vitamin D deficient. Based on the results you may need to have a high dose vitamin D supplement to increase your levels or a lower dose supplement to maintain an adequate existing vitamin D level.

Coaching Corner By Dr. De La Flor

A while back someone phoned me to book a home visit for the following day. The next morning, the daughter called me to cancel her Mum’s visit. Sadly, her Mum had passed away during the night. The next patient was a couple with a gorgeous baby, the typical couple with a drooling mouth emblematic of a first time parent. A genuine roller-coaster moment. Sometimes we go from condolences and a gloomy emotion to merriment and affection in the blink of an eye. I cherished both emotions, one brought me a sense of frustration (especially from the medical standpoint), the latter brought me some sense of bliss. Emotions - often, I have a hard time taming them. Do you?

RESOLUTION: For the next two weeks, let’s try to ponder on our ability to control ‘roller coaster’ mo-

ments. Even though we can’t be in command of every single daily event, we have to fight to try to have a positive, empowering, peaceful inner conversation. Getting down won’t solve anything. Let’s heal ourselves by praying, by talking, by sharing, by crying, by accepting our own errors and forgiving others. I might sound too repetitive, but let’s be patient with ourselves, sooner rather than later we’ll reap plentiful fruit. Get inspired, get excited, get motivated, get busy and get going!

f all goes well the Canary Islands may be the first Spanish autonomous region to legally incorporate the use of complementary medicine into the mainstream health service. It is already recognised that hundreds of thousands of residents regularly use treatments and preventative methods such as homeopathy, acupuncture and herbal medicine. As well as purchasing them from herbal outlets there are apparently 400 pharmacies which sell pertinent products, as well as 500 doctors around the island who are happy to prescribe them for patients to buy.

through the change which appears to have been on the cards for a while. A proposal has already been submitted to the Canarian Parliament for a change in law, way back in may 2010, for the “promotion of public programmes consisting of com-

Dr. Denis Chanut

plementary and alternative medicine, as recognised by the World Health Organisation, within the Canarian health service”. According to a report on the Chamber’s own website, Vicente Dorta Antequera is happy to give his backing to the proposal not only because he believes in their efficacy, but also that as preventative medicines they may well constitute a saving for the health service in the long run. You can help make the change by signing the petition that is available at the following address: www. change.org/es/peticiones/ grupos-parlamentarios-delparlamento-de-canariasinclusi%C3%B3n-de-la-medicina-complementaria-y-alternativa-mca.

HELP FOR SMOKERS >

H

Kick the weed

elp for smokers wanting to kick the habit looks to be on its way from an unlikely source, bearing in mind the current cutbacks. The Department of Health has announced that it will cover half the cost of drugs and treatments used to combat the addiction and the contribution could be a full 100 per cent in the case of smokers who suffer from chronic illnesses. The announcement was made by regional Director General for Public Health, José Fernando Díaz-Flores, who said the measure will see aids such as nicotine substitutes and anxi-

ety suppressants co-funded by the government as of the summer, although certain conditions will be imposed to ensure the help is targeted appropriately. “The smoker must show that he or she has already tried to give up the habit in the past and the treatment will have to be recommended by a doctor” explained Díaz-Flores. The help programme will be trialled in a number of health centres across the Canaries in the second half of the year before being made universally available. According to an opinion

survey conducted last year, nearly 65 per cent of people in the Canaries are in favour of the authorities providing financial help to stop smoking.

LANZAROTE SALT >

T

Saline solution

he first salt to be sold in chemists in Spain is from Lanzarote. Flor de Sal Natural Volcánica from Lanzarote Natural has exceptional qualities which is why it has been chosen for this landmark position. Analyses have shown that it not only has gourmet quality but also health benefits. The

salt is now on sale in a 160g format at a price of €7.09. What makes it so special, apart from the purity of the raw material itself, is its moisture content, which has been reduced to 5.2 grams thanks to the innovative process of collection. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a maximum of 6.5 gr.

The low humidity and rich presence of trace elements make it a unique and healthy salt, free of chemicals and anti-caking agents. It is available on its own or with a variety of spices, herbs and garlic. For more information about the company see: www.lanzarotenatura.es.

LONGEVITY

Grand old age Juana Cabrera, known as the ‘Grandmother of Telde’ was recently honoured on Canarian television. The lady in question has reached the impressive age of 107 and was suitably surprised when visited by reporters from the popular Cerca de ti (Close to you), programme. Born in Agua de Bueyes, Fuerteventura, in 1906, Doña Juana, as she is called here as a sign of respect, is still aware, bright and smiling, with a fabulous memory. Delighted, and seemingly undeterred by the sudden influx of cameras and crew into her home, she told reporters that she, “loves visits and particularly from young people.” Now living in Gran Canaria, she is evidently surrounded by a loving family and plenty of friends who had organised the surprise. Could this, maybe, be one of the things that have kept her so happy and healthy for so long?

Hi everyone

hope you’re all well. This week I received an email from my friend Mel who is a well known author, and lives in Barnsley in the UK. She and I taught together for some years when I lived there in the 70s. She’s been very interested in some new research into pure coconut oil which is rumoured to halt and even repair the damage done by Alzheimer’s Disease, and in many cases, stopping the development of the disease altogether. Doctor Mary Newport is a physician who runs a neo natal unit in Tampa Florida in the USA. Her husband Steve began to develop the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and she became passionately determined to help him. Once she was sure he was starting to show the symptoms, she took him to a specialist who gave him the ‘clock test’ whereby the sufferer has to draw a clock

Killing the golden goose Dear Editor

L

ast week I met friends of f a cruise ship to spend a day here. They are part of a growing number of people who go on a cruise every year, but this year there first stop-off in Spain held an unpleasant surprise. They were charged an additional 10 per cent on all items on board once they entered within 10 miles of the port of Vigo. The charge apparently represented a Spanish VAT charge. They along with many other passengers therefore refused to buy anything within that limit. The result of this will mean that the Spanish stop-offs will be less profitable for the

face. He drew a few little circles in a vaguely circular pattern and was unable to make it look like a clock. The specialist told her that he was a moderate to severe patient and warned he would get worse, and would need constant care. Mary began to research it and explains Alzheimer’s as a “kind of diabetes of the brain” and says that it begins up to twenty years before the symptoms exacerbate and become obvious to everyone. She found that insulin is not getting to the brain and this prevents the brain cells receiving glucose, which is their primary fuel. However, she discovered that there was a different substance called Keytones which can also feed the brain cells. Keytones are metabolised in the liver after eating coconut oil. So Doctor Newman began adding spoonful to her husband’s porridge. She began to notice a difference after three weeks and took him back to the specialist and he again attempted to draw a clock. The difference

was startling, as he even put in some numbers and got the shape right. After a few months, he was able to run again, and although for over a year he had been unable to read, he now began to enjoy books again and could laugh and joke and hold intelligent conversations once more. Dr Newport kept a strict journal of his progress, and wrote a book called Alzheimer’s, what if there was a cure? She received hundreds of letters thanking her for her help and advice telling her that their loved one too had improved with coconut oil. She was also featured on CNN news channel.

You can get it posted to Europe and to the UK from Holland and Barrett ( www.hollandandbarratt.com ) and ebay www.ebay.co.uk but not everyone will post to us here. If you go to http://www. cbn.com/tv/1472017228001 then you can watch the video this remarkable lady has made. I’m certainly going to try it, but I think I’ll trust Holland and Barratt first. And if any of you know where it is sold here in Tenerife, then give me a ring on 616 110 930 or email me at katykenned@ telefonica.net.

Until next time, take care of each other and remember that, ‘a sharp tongue can cut your own throat’.

The Spanish would say it is bread for today and hunger for tomorrow. A legal move no doubt, but very short sighted in the long run. It remains to be seen whether this was only a charge to be made in the Vigo region, or whether it is to be levied all over the country. If it is, ports such as Barcelona who have spent so much money on first class facilities are bound to see a major downturn in business. The Canaries wouldn’t seem to be levying a charge at the moment. However, the charges on the mainland could affect us here as there will be changes in itineraries which may make the islands less attractive. It is a policy which is shortsighted and stupid in my opinion.

Since the new people have taken over the restaurant – presumably rented from the Cabildo – they put up a chain to stop people going into the car park and accessing the mirador when they are closed.

You are likely to experience some deep insight. This will be a time of revelation, of finding out something of value. In group settings, you may have considerable influence over others.

You will also need a medical and to fill in a 60 question form at your local health centre. You will have to visit Mapfre in Santa Cruz to obtain a certificate confirming you have no criminal record and will need dog insurance with a minimum cover of 120,000 euros, as well as completing another SAC form (Petición de Antecedentes Penales de Registro Central de Penados y Rebeldes). Then you return all the paperwork to the SAC and you will receive a preliminary certificate. Subject to all the paperwork being correct, your licence will be issued in a month or so. As Acción del Sol points out, it is quite an eye opener and a lengthy process, but is the only way to stay within the law. Acción del Sol is always happy to help and advise where necessary, particularly as you will not be able to take one of these breeds away from the refuge until you have the appropriate licence.

All dogs now have to be registered with local councils, but there are several breeds which also have particular requirements. A Rottweiler, Dogo Argentino, Fila Brasileiro, Tosa Inu and Akita Inus, along with Pit Bull, Staffordshire Bull and American Staffordshire Terriers will all need a Dangerous Dog Licence, which must be obtained by someone over 18 and without a police record. When out the dogs must be muzzled and on a lead at all times and can only be walked one at once. You will also be held responsible if someone else is walking your dog and it attacks a person or another animal and will need to display a dangerous dog sign on your premises and carry your licence and the dog´s paperwork whenever you are both out.

She was the star out on the terrace!

Two lucky Guaza puppies and two other dogs from the refuge recently flew to Germany to start their new lives but there are still lots of dogs looking for new homes. For instance we have a beautiful Sharpei that is looking for a special home, as well as Reny, a female nine month old cross, who would love a home with a garden or someone who has the time to take her for lots of walks. Both dogs are very loving but have had a bad start in life.

Acción Del Sol recently released some sound advice regarding owning a ‘potentially’ dangerous breed of dog.

tive electric motor which generate 916PS. Add to this power the fact that McLaren has also pioneered the use of the carbon fibre chassis in vehicle production over the past 30 years and it’s easy to see the winning combination. As plans for the 50th anniversary celebrations for McLaren continue, it has also been confirmed that their latest model will feature as part of the planned activities at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. The extensive trials are being carried out to ensure that the McLaren P1™ delivers on the target of being ‘the best driver’s car in the world on road and track’…or a frozen lake, for that matter. Check out the short film of that Arctic adventure at: www.youtube.com/ McLarenAutomotiveTV - wouldn’t you just love to be behind that wheel?

Thus, in the extreme conditions of the Arctic Circle the car was firmly put through its paces. The development team took the P1™ to the dramatic frozen landscapes of northern Sweden and tested the durability and handling of the car in some of the most hostile and toughest conditions on the planet. The culmination of this testing and infamous McLaren attention to detail will be showcased over the summer, when the McLaren P1™ will publicly demonstrate the power available from the mid-mounted 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine and highly effec-

recently acknowledged that current, 30 year old, regulations regarding lorry weights and dimensions did not take into account certain safety issues, energy efficiency or other environmental objectives. A Commission statement pointed out that changes could cut accidents involving vulnerable road users, such as cyclists, as well as saving fuel and reducing pollution. The existing EU directive restricting heavy goods vehicle weight to 44 tonnes will not be altered, but the maximum length of 18.75 metres will be raised: as long as the increase is in the cab section and improves safety and aerodynamic efficiency. The new plan would free up designers to develop deeper cabin skirts as part of a round, deflecting nose shape and extended crumple zone. The bigger cabs would also improve driver vision. According to Transport and Environment, lorries account for only 3 per cent of the European vehicle fleet but they cause 25 per cent of road transport emissions and are involved in 18 per cent of fatal crashes.

Parking practice

Road safety charity IAM recently offered some sound advice on parking. The organisation suggests that: in a car park you should reverse into parking spaces, making it safer when you’re driving out, as well as more fuel efficient as you’ll be manoeuvring with a warm engine. Try to start by manoeuvring the car so that the space is straight behind you: the less turning you have to do backwards, the easier most people find it to judge. Also, the rear

wheels are the point where a car ‘pivots’, so watching where they are relative to the corner of a wall / other car is really useful. Car sides are often not straight, so watch other things than just the car next to you when lining up in a space. Use your mirrors as well as looking over your shoulder and there’s no shame in peering out of an open window to get a better look. IAM chief examiner Peter Rodger said, “It’s important that you take your time and don’t succumb to pressure by other drivers around you when you are parking – it’s far better to do it right than to do it quickly.”

Basketball:

ACB debuts T

wo youngsters at CB Canarias are still walking on air after making their dream debuts in the ACB league, the toughest in Europe. Sergio Rodríguez and Adrian Báez, both play for the La Laguna club’s unofficial nursery side San Isidro and help out in training with the seniors. The young men got their chance to make their debuts against Fuenlabrada due to injuries to Saul Blanco and Jaime Heras, combined with foul trouble for Nico Richotti and Levi Rost during the game. Although Canarias could probably have got by with the remaining players, coach

Heras’ unfortunate injury helped make the youngsters’ dreams come true

Alejandro Martínez gave the pair the biggest thrill of their lives by sending them out on court in front of the 4000 strong crowd. Rodríguez was tasked for a time with defending Fuenlabrada’s star player James Feldeine while Báez was given a late run-out as the clock was winding and took full advantage by netting the final two points of the game, getting one of the biggest cheers of the day. The 81-71 kept Canarias in contention for an undreamt of play-off spot and made them the best team in the league over the last two months.

Doping case

Family torment T

he sister of the disgraced Canarian doctor convicted of running one of the world’s largest sports’ doping rings recently described her ordeal in an interview in the local press. Yolanda Fuentes, whose brother Eufemiano was given a one-year suspended sentence for endangering public health by supplying blood transfu-

sions to professional cyclists, spoke about her relief at being cleared of involvement in the ring, as well as the damage the affair has caused to her and her family. Fuentes said she has endured a nightmare for seven years since the Spanish authorities launched Operation Puerto to uncover widespread doping in sport. Yolanda was one of

three defendants cleared of the charges and she insisted that she had never broken the law at any time. “I had no idea what my brother was doing. I lived in Valencia and he was in Madrid. I have never been to the flat where the bags of frozen blood are said to have been kept. This whole affair has affected me psychologically and has also been hard for my children. At school they were accused of getting

good marks in PE because they were taking doping products”, she said in an interview with the La Provincia paper in Fuerteventura. She also described how the cloud of suspicion that she has lived under for years ruined her medical practice as patients increasingly distanced themselves from her. “I hope things return to normal but it will be difficult to repair the damage done” said Yolanda.

Butragueño, who went on to become a legend at Real. Jesé has already made his debut for the senior side, replacing Cristiano Ronaldo against Real Sociedad last season. However, there has been much speculation that his outspoken comments in February, when he complained that he was being “denied a proper chance”

with the first team when he was playing more than well enough to be selected, have harmed his prospects, at least under José Mourinho.

Tennis

Near miss

Carla Suárez’s wait for her maiden WTA Circuit title continues after she lost the final of the Estoril Open against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. The Canarian tennis player looked impressive on her way to the final but was beaten in straight sets (7-5, 6-2) by her Russian opponent, who is ranked four places above her in the world ratings. Pavlyuchenkova, who is coached by Martina Hingis, has now beaten the 25-year-

old from Las Palmas in all five of their meetings to date. Yet Suárez obviously hasn’t let the defeat get her down. Only days later she reached the second round of the Madrid Open by beating 2011 winner of the US Open and present world number nine, Samantha Stosur, in a surprise 7-6, 6-2 defeat. Carla’s good start to 2013 saw her break into the Top 20 for the first time in early April, but she has slid down a few places to Number 23 since. However, she is still the highest-ranked Spanish woman by some distance.

Pep Guardiola: CHAMPIONS Why he needs to prove himself, or does he? SS de Los Reyes 0 CD Tenerife 3

CD Tenerife confirmed their place as league winners with a convincing win on the outskirts of Madrid. Local side SS de Los Reyes were fighting for their 2nd B survival but they were swept aside by a rampant Tenerife outfit.

Part 2

A

Yet, taking a look at teams across Europe, we can see the impact Guardiola has had. His idea of high pressure is something Dortmund has based its game on: the same side that is now the toast of the town after mauling Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final. The highest compliment one can receive is that your work or ideals are an inspiration for others. True, Dortmund and Klopp have gone on to develop Guardiola’s ideas one step further but that is why they are one of the success stories of the season. That is the beauty of football: no strategy is fool proof and the challenge is to keep raising the bar higher. Guardiola himself used ideas from the past, taking examples from the great sides of Arrigo Saachi’s Milan, the Ajax of the mid 1990s and Cruyff’s dream team to enhance his side. He formed his own variations and they worked: a glance at his trophy cabinet will tell you precisely that. Though he wasn’t perfect - he made a few errors in signing players, and

since January, he has failed to break his duck. But all that changed a few minutes before full time as he strode past the Sanse defence before snaking the ball past the keeper. It was a great goal and sealed the blanquiazules 0-3 victory.

before the break when young Tenerife keeper Roberto, making his debut, made a poor attempt to clear a corner and the ball was headed into the goal by Ivan Garcia. The second half saw a slight improvement from the blanquiazules and they deserved to at least snatch a draw. Aridane came off the bench and headed into the side netting, Ayoze had a good

costly ones at that, but he said he’d rather make a mistake and learn from it than die wondering: a true leader and not afraid to show his faults. Guardiola has always maintained that he wants a project to ‘seduce him’, and when the Bayern board did just that he took the job. The idea that Bayern are not one to challenge one’s self with is a popular myth. Bayern are presently at the top and those who have been there will tell you it takes a lot more to stay there than to get there. And it would be wrong to say Guardiola is a coward for shying away from the Premier League – just because it attracts the highest revenues doesn’t mean it is the ‘it’ league to be in. Remember, the man is only 40 something: his time will come. Guardiola has earned every bit of praise that has come his way, now watch him attempt to raise the bar higher, where it is considered impossible.

Down, but not out Marino 3 Real Madrid C 3

Atlético B 0 CD Marino 1

Despite various questionable decisions from referee Benjumea Álvarez which left the home side and fans reeling, Marino showed during this game that they may be down, but they are not out. Only five minutes into the game Álvaro López scored from a penalty, followed by a great goal from a corner on the 42nd minute by Airam, bringing the score to 2 - 0 to Marino, yet in an action packed match a further four goals were scored in the second half – even though the high temperatures throughout the match - 33 degrees C - nearly finished for everyone. Good game.

Club Atlético Madrid B s lack of intensity was certainly a help for Marino, but their winning goal, scored by Rafa Hernández in the 70th minute when he took advantage of a break in the defence, gave them a well deserved second away win and the team can hold their heads high. Of course, all has been overshadowed by the announcement from club president Pepe Barrios that he will step down on May 20, stating his reason as being the lack of support from the relevant institutions. The club’s future is unsure on all levels.

lot can happen in a year’s time, particularly in the unpredictable business of football, so when Pep Guardiola returns he will indeed find new challenges. Among them will be to re-prove himself in a different environment and a different football culture. While he’s been away a shift in power has emerged. Spanish club football may not be the very best in the business anymore and a new style is in vogue: the effective, efficient and ruthless German style.

With regulars Suso and Bruno suspended and flying wing back Llorente injured the team took on an unfamiliar feel, but nevertheless Aridane scored early on for the blanquiazules after the local keeper parried a Rigo free kick. It was all Tenerife and soon after they were two goals to the good, Aridane again heading in from close range. His goal tally now stands at 23, the highest for anyone at this level of Spanish football. With league rivals Leganes drawing earlier in the day only one point was needed to win the league but Tenerife were in no mood to loosen their grip on the top spot. The home team did hit the bar as they rallied slightly, but the blanquiazul defence held firm. Tenerife now have a surprise player by the name of Ayoze Garcia. The young Santa Cruz born striker broke all scoring records playing in the youth set up but so far, in nine appearances

CD Tenerife 0 RSD Alcalá 1 With the biggest crowd of the season (10,621) the blanquiazules flattered to deceive. Unfortunately, the steamy Heliodoro Stadium echoed to the sound of “Sack the board” and “we feel cheated” in protest at charging season ticket holders to watch the play-off. However, visitors RSD Alcalá had a lot to play for and only a win could save them from relegation. With other results going their way in Spain they gained their stroke of luck just

volley turned around the post, but nothing. This non-event of a match was a frustrating spectacle for supporters, but we all know this will all change in a couple of week’s time. The draw for the play-off final will be made on May 20. Alavés have been crowned champions in their group, a rival many here would like to avoid. In the South group, Cartagena and Real Jaén are fighting out top place whilst the East/Catalan group will be won by Hospitalet (Barcelona) or Huracan Valencia. Now it gets interesting!

FROCH

o one could begrudge Nottingham’s Carl ‘The Cobra’ Froch an easy fight when he took on the American Yusaf Mack last November, for in his previous eight fights the boxing warrior had faced a comparable murderers’ row, battling the likes of Jean Pascal, Jermaine Taylor, Andre Dirrell, Mikkel Kessler, Arthur Abraham, Glen Johnson, Andre Ward and Lucian Bute, all of whom had been world champions at the time, or former champions. I can’t think of any boxer in history, not just in the U.K., who has taken on so many world-class opponents in consecutive fights. In June 2011 in Atlantic City, Froch swept into the final of the toughest boxing tournament ever devised, after comprehensively beating the Jamaican Road Warrior and former world title holder Glen Johnson, and looked so good that the American boxing people saluted him as, “the most under-rated fighter in the world”, with one of Americas top boxing promoters Lou Di Bella leading the appreciation for ‘The Cobra’ by adding, “This guy should be a television superstar in Britain.

Teno Trail

2013

Run for the hills THE PREPARATIONS FOR THIS YEAR’S FONTEIDE TENO TRAIL ARE HOTTING UP. This, the fourth edition, has plenty of surprises in store for the contestants. The route has been changed slightly to now include a more ample example of the beauty of the mountainous Teno and Buenavista area, including its most representative villages. Starting at the impressive Masca hamlet the route covers 12km of tracks, through the tiny village of

Teno Alto and on to El Palmar: literally running through the north / south divide of the island and the extraordinary changes in vegetation that such a route implies. Beginning at 10am, after passing the Cruz de Hilda lookout point, competitors will traverse the dry slopes of the westerly facing Masca Barranco via the PR 55 trail, where the ocean background perfectly complements the imposing mountain scenery. Then it’s onto the PR 51, through a cool forest of heathers, to the Baracán lookout point

which will be the first refreshment area. Then on towards Los Bailaderos and the PR 57, where runners will have to combat a difficult climb before a somewhat technically challenging one kilometre downhill track in the relative lushness of the Buenavista valley and into El Palmar. It’s going to be an interesting trail for all concerned. For information and registration see: www.islabajatrail.es. But run – you only have until May 18 to register if you want to take part.
