6th December 2013
Its a holiday weekend here on the island. (constitution weekend) Expect the banks and main shops to be closed. Although the bad weather seems to have escaped us it would seem we are due for a tropical storm starting on Wednesday.
After reflecting on the article from David Ayres this week I guess we have so much to be thankful for.
Christmas markets are held nightly in Campanario up until Christmas. A good night out can be had there under the Christmas lights with live entertainment most nights. A couple of our Restaurants have sent their Christmas menus, booking advised.
Enjoy these weeks ahead. Christmas in Fuerte is stress free!
With his dog Nala, Christ Mendez won yesterday's first edition of the Running Dog, an entertaining race for dogs and their owners held in Antigua in order to raise funds in the fight against cancer. The test, which passed through the streets of Old Virgin and The Cross and the Camino del Durazno, was attended by 50 adult athletes whose proceeds went to the Cancer Association Fuerteventura.Read More
Weathermen predict that the tail end of the wet weather front that brought major problems to all the islands except Fuerteventura and Lanzarote is likely to make its presence felt and lead to a wash-out for the Bank Holiday week-end, which is traditionally one of the busiest for shoppers in the run-up to Christmas.
Expectation began to mount towards the end of last week as dozens of trailers, caravans and other vehicles rolled into the normally sedate town of Morro Jable to set up a preliminary camp to be reasonably close to the spectacular Cofete Beach, where much of the initial filming of Exodus - the story of Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt - is taking place this week.
One of the many manias of the last couple of decades has been risk aversion, the frantic urge to eliminate risk from our lives. We stop our children from getting dirty, touching other children with colds, playing conkers or running in the playground. We even put funny hats on their heads and sunscreen on their faces in case the sun should shine on them. In the adult world we have the Health and Safety Executive to ensure we come to no harm and at the same time to surround us with ridiculous precautions that should be laughable if we weren’t all getting used to them.
You can tell that Christmas is only around the corner when the Pantomime comes to town! Caleta Repertory Amateur Productions are now set to tread the boards again in time for the festive period.
This year’s pantomime “Leisure Island” is about a group of holidaymakers who arrive to the island for a week or two of sunshine. Unbeknown to them, there is evil and menace in the air, and they find themselves being recruited as pirates and taken back to the year 1719!
