The mini-train

This is the mini-train of Maspalomas, Gran Canaria and I enjoyed one trip with it around the city in the middle of the night. It was magic, with all the lights and with all that people on the streets or terraces saluting while we pass them… and then we stopped for a panorama of Maspalomas, as you can see in the last photo… wonderful! I recommend it if you’re in Maspalomas for your holidays (it has only one stop from where you can book your trip: Avenida de Italia nº10).

Este es el mini-tren de Maspalomas, Gran Canaria con que yo disfruté de un viaje por la ciudad en medio de la noche. Fue mágico, con todas las luces y con toda la gente en las calles o terrazas saludando mientras pasamos … y luego nos paramos para ver un panorama de Maspalomas, como se puede ver en la última foto … maravilloso! Lo recomiendo si estás en Maspalomas para tus vacaciones (tiene sólo una parada desde donde podrás reservar su viaje: Avenida de Italia n º 10).

El Mirador de Las Nieves

In my last post I took you to Playa Famara, now I’ll show you the same place seen by the mountains that brings the clouds. In this case, only the luck made that I could see through the clouds, which is a rare situation up there, as the strong winds can change things like in a minute. The view is breathtaking, but siting on the edge of the mountain, with all the fog and wind is a little dangerous, but I did it for you, my readers 🙂 Enjoy the beautiful sight of Caleta de Famara, seen by the mountains. At the end of this post, you can see a panoramic view of the place – not easy to do it without a tripod and in that meteorological conditions, so don’t be too exigent with me… Enjoy also a short movie I made, where you can see how fast the clouds are going over the peaks…
