Gran Canaria 2






We had been driving in the fog for a long time, but when we reached "the top" of the island, Cruz de Tejeda, the fog disappeared.


Roque Nublo. There are some pretty wild moutain sceneries in Gran Canaria.


Ellen and Knut enjoys the pictoresque view on our way down to Mogán.


The winding road down to Mogán is a scenery in its own, and takes careful driving. Twenty years ago I drove down the road for the first time, and at the time there were no asphalt and the road was more like a dried out river. Improvement has accured.


We are in Puerto de Mogán, where you still may find telephone boxes. No people lining up to use it though...

The Norwegian church abroad, or The Norwegian sailor's church as it was called earlier. This is in Arguineguin.

In the night we found a very nice restaurant in the old part of Las Palmas, with very few tourists. We did as the Spaniards, we waited till passed ten aclock.


Plaza de Espańa in Las Plamas. Las Palmas is a very nice and interesting city of close to 400.000 inhabitants, and the whole urban area comes close to 700.000. The city was founded in 1478. Some say that Las Palmas has the best climate in the world.


At a restaurant at one of the beaches in Las Palmas. This is the primary tourist area, and the waiter even spoke some Norwegian - and he did more than "Tusen takk!" and "Hvordan har du det?"

The promenade with its restaurants and hotels and the beach is a lively place but without any stress. And Knut and Ellen testifies that the mojitos are of good quality.
