Big Canary

Where did I go this weekend? A strange place indeed. A German, English colony. A little slice of heaven for gays and nudists. Is Gran Canaria beautiful? Si, claro.

Flowers like fireworks line every street, parakeets flirt in the trees, mountains stand mightily and there is a desert. The sea is klein blue.

Gran Canaria makes you feel as if you are in a Martin Parr photograph, the National Geographic and the 90s.

If you like people watching, fry ups, dunes and the sun, Gran Canaria is the perfect place for you.

Local art.

Local gastronomy.

With an islander.



Phrase of the weekend:

'I shake the sand from my shorts' (to the tune of 'I whip my hair back and forth' by Willow Smith)
