Do you see the mountains in the background....if you click the picture might get bigger...it depends on how blogger uploaded it.
Today we headed to Teguise to the market. Once a week on Sunday they have the largest market in Lanzarote, where people can get everything they need for the week.
In order to get there we took a bus....yep Lanzarote is not so flat. The entire time we were driving away from the coast up and up and up. All I could think about was the Ironman that is here is May. People ride this on a bike....it was hot, really hot, and the wind as you go inland seems to disappear. Good thing I was in the air conditioned bus :)
The market was good, soo crowded. However, it was not like America. People were not pushing, or shoving, you were paranoid that your kid was going to get knocked over. The Spanish love babies....yep we brought Jack in the Bjorn...he fell asleep soon after our arrival and slept the whole time we were there. Man 20lbs on your front in the heat was hard.
I love Europe....and we have been a lot of places.....this might come close to my favorite. Sienna Italy still probably takes the cake. I remember walking with Ryan down the cobblestone streets there and saying ....if you get relocated here I would say yes....it is just a different way of life. The immediate nature to go go go and get things done just is not here.
I love this picture of my dad and Brianna, it is like he is telling her - you got the world in front of you kid....
Soooo we head to Madrid in two days. I will be sad to leave the island, the people have been great and we have just had a really nice time. This is our pool off the back...it is the only "sweet" water pool here, the other two are salt water. Our kids pretty much had it to themselves, which they thought was grand. In the afternoons I would take Aly and swim laps while the little ones napped.
