Hi << Test First Name >>
February is the shortest month of the year and this yea
r it has been full of spectacular events. The weather has been incredible. We have had winds that were so strong it looked as though the palm trees were being blown flat but no they are very resilient and are still standing.
Torrential rain has filled the barrancos ( ravines ) and at last the reservoirs are practically full again. One day we saw three water spouts just off the coast at Santiago - a truly amazing spectacle.
At last the weather has settled down and we are able
to see the benefits of the rain. The mountains are green, the flowers are full of buds and the almond trees have blossom. Throughout February we had 3 walking groups and were able to walk every day. This is just one of the wonderful things about our small island. If the weather is not so good in one area, just around the coast or on the other side of the mountain you can have perfect conditions.
The last week of February is traditionally carnival time in Santiago. This is a very special time for the local people. Entire families get involved from the very young to the very old. Each year has a theme. This year the theme was Asia. The parents, the children and the schools work so very hard - the aim being to make this year's carnival better than last! It's a joy to watch, the colours, the atmosphere and the children's faces as they parade in the procession. The result was wonderful.
