Building in Tenerife

Today we visited Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the Canary Islands. The Canary Islands is a province of Spain that sits about 75 miles west of the African coast, so it’s considered an European city but Geographically its in Africa.  We didn’t know what to expect here but were surprised by a rather large port city, also by how clean and orderly it was. We wondered around down town for a while and found the city full of the typical shops and cafes, then took a ride thru town in one of its ultra modern street cars, we found that riding public transportation is a great way to observe how the locals live. There were a lot of young university students on the train with us, one thing that we noticed is how different they behaved  unlike their American and European piers they had very few piercing and tattoos and most of the conversations revolved around school, matters, not drugs, sex and rock and roll.  Maybe some young people are still living outside the global village.  We only had a few hours to spend here so we were not able to venture out into the country side, it’s a shame seems like an interesting island.
