we arrived in Gran Canaria without any problems and, failing to find public transport to Aguimes, we took a taxi. It is not all that far. This is a very pretty town with some very strange statues. There is naked woman playing the cello who has a tape recorder inside her so she can broadcasr music (which doesn't all have cello in it), there is a donkey and a camel (the camel is right beh9nd our hotel room) and a dancing couple where he is dressed as a woman and he is dressed as a man. There is poetry on many walls.
Today we went walking. We went uphill for about four hours. There were many lizards and birds of prey. The view from the end of the road was stunning. It took less than 3 hurs to walk back down. Now various muscles ache.
The days are warm but the nights cool. I am sitting here wrapped in several layers and a blanket. Ashley is also wrapped in a blanket. The restaurants and bars are all very cold so, having eaten, we are back in the room where the blankets are, drinking supermarket beer.
