Tenerife business of this suburb of Los Realejos had a few new ideas, certainly.
As usual, special goods or sales were displayed in the
street La Longuera. However, the only novelty was to make children contribute with business ideas.
Now, some of its shops are open until late in the afternoon, contrary to the initially envisioned times until 2.p.m.
Also, its residents may sell private goods in the road on that day.
Working from home moms and students can put their home made jewelry or whatever for sale.
So any new business idea is welcome.
It's the lady with a red long skirt.
She didn't have a workshift at the nearby bakery on that day.
Obviously, she celebrated the day with a street lunch from a nearby bar.
The owner of the hardware shop Marsan told me that people will stop coming to the shops when they can't park their cars in front of them.
A park house or parking ground is needed. There's ample space when you walk two minutes up El Monturio road. However possibly, the town of Realejos or whoever owns it wants too much money for that ground. What a pity if that was the case.
Tenerife´s good climate helps many a street business. It brings out the
crowds of browsers, shoppers and even thinkers. Perhaps, one or two may
get new visions of commerce for years to come.
So far, the typical great Tenerife weather of autumn which also applies to the North is there to stay. It has always been a steady companion on this day by the Middle of October from 2009 until 2016. And so have the street fashion shows.
Every year more chairs are provided for the Toscal Longuera fashion parade in the street. Obviously, young and old come. All watch and enjoy it very much.There are no Spanish parties, festivals or Tenerife fiestas without Salsa music or musical hits from the latest pop charts. Most probably, they were again broadcasted by Radio Realejos, this year.
However it remains to wonder, if the two table dancers who seemed to have had some of their own musical equipment may not have gained a business idea, as yet. There wasn't any turned over hat on the floor for collecting coins, though. Those kids were dressed with swimming trunks, as the Tenerife temperature of Los Realejos still showed 27 degrees Celcius on my scale by mid-afternoon on that autumn day.
It's a pity that many of the owners of a holiday home in Tenerife will never know about this, as they only come back in winter.
