three days on tenerife. everything is different. strange. flat sharing with 20 people on a small finca. sunny & warm in the daytime, yet quite cool when sun is down. very scenic, beautiful. mountainous. next bus stop & next shop is about 3,5 km downhill … & of course uphill on the way back. & i really mean uphill … very steep! the waxing moon is like a lying C here 🙂
everything is new, we have to find out about all everyday things: how to get where we want, how the busses ( guaguas) are going. where to get our food, where to register residence and so on. a challenge for all the three of us, difficult especially for j …
today we took a trip round the island, inspected a small house between san miguel & vilaflor (very nice, very romantic, but so far back that we would need a car to live there … have to think about it). on our way back we visited an organic, permaculture finca near alcala, guia de isora. we bought some organic avocados, tomatoes & sweet potatoes there & talked to the owner of the finca – an english woman, single mother of three, transition-minded & very interested in our life as homeschoolers. she offered us lodging in a small 2-bedroom-house on her finca, temporary or maybe for longer … maybe we will go there for some time if we won’t find a house/flat within the next week. sounds interesting 🙂
last part of today’s trip led us through the mountains in the northwest of tenerife … awesome! incredibly beautiful … overwhelming. soul balsam.
