Gotta love this supermarket run!
Once in a while, not researching a destination, (usually a no-go for this detail oriented traveller), has its own rewards- this time, a bevy of unexpected, exciting sights, sounds and smells, smack in the middle of Gran Canaria’s biggest city. I admit- we’re smitten! Smitten with Las Palmas, aka “Ciudad del Mar”- what an uninspired catchphrase for a breathtaking (breathgiving!) location….

The ocean is all-pervasive here; it’s in the air
It makes you overlook ’70s ugliness without blinking
and on wilder days, lets you walk beside the four lane city highway, engulfed in the sound of crashing waves while you sniff sea breezes.
The light changes dramatically all the time
and boldens colours, or darkens them with fast, heavy, rainclouds
You start to remember to look out for rainbows.
And this for my Swiss friends: Dichtestress auf Kanarisch!
