We're in the midst of the Tenerife carnival....or carnaval, as it's written in Spanish.
Yesterday the main parade was held in the capital city, Santa Cruz and tonight is
the 'Burial of the Sardine'.
Here are some photos taken from the official carnival website, here on this link.
Credit goes to the unnamed photographer(s) 'Prensa' whose photos appear on that site and here below.
And since I love the sounds and rhythms of carnival music, here's one song that's always present...a favourite of Tenerife locals: Chicharrero de Corazon, video from 2009.
I'll be back very soon with more of my own photos taken in the streets during this carnival season.Thanks for your visit and ¡hasta la vista!
