Promenade by the hotel in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote.

The bus ride to Playa Blanca took about half an hour.  Actually it was a little longer because the bus stopped at 5 or 6 hotels before reaching ours.  The first thing that impressed me about the place is the view of Fuerteventura in the distance.  We'll go visit Fuerteventura in the next few days, it's something I need to get out of my system .  I'd like to see where I would have worked and wonder what my life would be like now if I would have gone down that path rather than the one I did take.

Arrival and check-in at the hotel was easy.  We had just enough time to bring our stuff to the room, take a short walk along the"paseo marítimo" and get back to the hotel for dinner.  While we were on our walk I stepped into a little market to buy some water for the room. I noticed that all of the employees were dressed in Costumes - actually there were costumed people all over the place.  I asked the clerk in the store - Carnaval!  It must be a season here - we celebrated Carnaval in Poland a week or two ago!  So, after dinner we went to check out the Carnaval festivities in Playa Blanca.  It was a fun first evening in Lanzarote.
