I hadn't seen the elderly tennis player for a while. Her apartment in Romantica 1 of La Longuera had become damp. However, this wasn't the only reason why she had moved, Her friend Angus Low had settled at the Davida Home for the elderly at La Paz of Puerto Cruz.
Nevertheless, the amazing former bowling champion started to walk again soon after.
That's when I encountered the happy man and Steffny, as so often on a Saturday when the village is buzzing with people. My UK friends had tea at their favorite hangout. That's the street café and bar Cafeteria Paraiso in Toscal Longuera.
Besides, not only stunning sun-ups but also beautiful sundowns were enjoyed two days after the famous summer solstice of this region of the municipality of Los Realejos.
Needless to say, there are more breath taking views of Toscal. Also, you see almost the entire Puerto de la Cruz from a little park by the oldest building of the village the 500 year old Hacienda La Gorvorana which may be restored, after all.
Indeed, this settlement of approximately 7000 inhabitants by almost 25% of its municipality Los Realejos doesn't only have the advantages of a small town. There people still greet each other on the main street, as early as 7 a.m. in the morning.
Often, several flocks of pigeons cruise the skies in astounding ways. You would think they were holding flight shows. Many of the birds roost on Azotea roof tops where some breeders keep them for sports. In fact, not all last floors are used for Northern penthouses of the island.
