After a long drive yesterday we left the car in the underground garage and walked today. The Friday Artisan Market was all over the town, on the streets, in the squares, by the port etc. The place was crowded.
After a wander around we stopped in a bar overlooking the boats and had a drink.
After dinner we walked back down to the port to enjoy the night life.
Tonight we are looking forward to some Rock and Roll in the entertainment bar!
Today we set off on a long drive over the mountains into the centre of the island, heading for Tajeda, an attractive, sleepy village according to the guide book. The roads were good, if a bit scary at times, with many hair pin bends.
Eventually we could see Tajeda in the distance. When we arrived, the village was rammed with cars and people. We were very lucky to find a space to park. It turns out that the village was the finishing line for one of the Trans Gran Canaria running races. We managed to get a table on the street just before the finish and enjoyed a drink and an almond cake while watching the exhausted runners coming in. Tajeda is famous for growing almonds.
Not quite the sleepy village but a great drive nonetheless with amazing scenery and even more amazing cyclists who we passed on the way up the mountains and passed us on the way down!
After a long day of driving we need a break and plan to stay local tomorrow. There is a Friday Market in Puerto de Mogan which we can walk around.
