For those of you who are lucky enough to be in Tenerife this weekend Saturday 23rd June marks St Johns Day with fires and parties on many beaches. Particularly popular are the ones held in El Médano, Los Cristianos, and Fañabe in the south, but one of the most spectacular will no doubt again be the west coast celebration at the fiesta’s namesake beach of Playa San Juan. If you are near one of these beach parties, you will see the clear pagan origins of the midsummer rite with people leaping over the flames three times, a purification ritual to burn away sins and misfortunes, and so bring good luck for the next year. Thanks to Janet Anscombe In Tenerife for this information.
Love it here, been so many times. Hopefully many more in the future.
Hi David Mccoombe, Thanks for the words of support, Trust you have an enjoyable stay in Tenerife.
Los Cristianos behöver att låna lite värme av oss som bor i Skåne; de kan få minst 5 +grader...
I agree with Roy gray it's free and always people listening to him in restaraunt. I've never eaten there but always stand and listen to him. Or sometimes eat at fu Lin Chinese buffet and you can hear him there. Los cristianos wouldn't be the same without his voice doing what he does. I'm there in three weeks and will look forward to hearing him again in person. As webcam can pick him up but nicer to be there.
whats being sold at the stall?
I could laugh at these ''Nasty comments'' on this man singing, wise up its FREE entertainment, not the London Palladium. He gets my vote, long may he continue, so much for these ''armchair Generals''.
Great service at Linares Vidar. Looking forward to som Al-Fresco Steaks next week :-)
Nothing wrong with the singing Buddy.It is greit to be at Linares 2
