My World Tuesday 3

Girl in Canary Island dress

Welcome to my world on Tenerife in the Canary Islands.

This photo was taken June 2007 during one of the yearly fiestas, the Romeria de San Isidro Labrador, patron saint of agricultors, held in La Orotava, Tenerife.
In her basket the young woman carries small slices of baguette, spread with chorizo meat paste as well as hard cooked eggs. These fiestas will be starting again soon this month.

Here is what she is carrying in her basket:

I have only been to the Canary Island once when I was a young teen who could care less about where I was. How I'd love to return again as an adult who would appreciate all this beauty. I love her dress and I especially love learning about different traditions and festivals. Thanks for sharing.

Oh how cool! I love Spain. My parents had a house on the Costa del Sol years ago and it was a wonderful place to visit.
