Tenerife #4

Hello Again,

In the lobby - sweltering, but that´s an anomaly. Our hotel is on the swank side, with an appalling carbon footprint. Mark Stewart would doubtless pen a screed.

Anyhow, off in a few to record in a new, favored location. The CP and I heard sounds there yesterday that neither of us had heard before in nature. A peculiar tidal clattering...

The seagulls´calls are also disorienting, possessing a distinctly simian tonality at odds with familiar behavioral assumptions. Shame that they´re rather shy about sharing their howls with us.

More Later,

TS

Tenerife #3

(Re-posted and amended from the original Facebook entry. Sorry - short of time!)

Explored another corner of the island yesterday. We hit the motherlode - a long strip of black volcanic sand, populated primarily by locals. Extraordinary vistas along the way, and amazing moments which lurched and stumbled into our field of view, including two women, probably a mother (middle-aged, topless) and daughter (with a profile resembling Brooke Shields´wraith-like Blue Lagoon frame), hauling the rotting hulk of a PC monitor from the surf. As they artfully positioned it ato...p a rock formation, the CP and I were catapulted into a plane of infinite bliss...


Later,
