On our final full day in Tenerife, we wanted to go visit some other towns and explore more of the island. We had plans to hit three towns in the north, but only made it to one. But primero, breakfast!
And then we got on the road and headed to San Cristobal de La Laguna, which is known as a cute town that will “remind you of Havana, Cuba”.
Not sure about that, since it really only reminded me of…Spain, but it was a cute little town nonetheless. We enjoyed walking down the streets, stopping for a fresh juice, and just strolling through to little streets with bright buildings.
The last supper! We wanted fresh fish and after first checking out a way-too-expensive restaurant right on the water, we back-tracked and ended up at El Cine, which is a no frills fish and seafood place that also serves simple tomato and onion salads, papas con mojo (potatoes with mojo) and french fries.
It was delicious! Fresh, light, and exactly what we wanted.
We took a stroll after dinner and then headed home for an early night so that we could get up and enjoy a few hours on the beach before our 5:00 flight home.
I probably shouldn’t post this on the internet, but…I’m going to.
And then we headed to the airport for our flights back to reality! What could have been a very rainy weekend turned out to be absolutely beautiful and so, so much fun. I feel lucky to have two friends like them here, when life can be lonely sometimes.
