A good pub quiz trick question for you; Which is the highest mountain in Spain?
Answer: El Teide in Tenerife at 3718m or 12,198ft which in my book is quite high.
We have now left Little Britain and have moved up to the north west coast near a town called Icod. We are renting an apartment in a village of concrete houses half way up a hill. There are two snags, the drive is about a 1 in 4 hill which the Fiat can only climb by revving like mad and slipping the clutch, the smell is awful. The other snag is it is a long way from civilisation by which I mean a restaurant so tonight, and I suspect tomorrow, we are "at home" cooking on the small stove they provide. The apartment does have a nice terrace and great views over the sea so with a bottle of wine, some local cheese it will not be too bad just in case you are feeling sorry for us. I've also just noticed that the local beer I am drinking whilst writing this is over 7% so goodness knows what rubbish I have been typing.
Tomorrow we explore the coast west of here including a village called Buenavista which deserves a visit just for the name, it does not seem to have a direct connection with Buena Vista in Havana or more importantly Buena Vista Social Club but we shall sing some of their greatest hits as we investigate the town. I am sure you cannot wait for the next update.
