Remembering Carnival Time in Costa Teguise
Movers and Shakers
Although the Carnival in Lanzarote is now a month ago, the holiday snaps have brought back memories of duelling drummers, gorgeous dancers, exotic floats, with whole familes dressed in fantastic costumes. Local people and holiday makers enjoying fun together. It seemed that the whole population was out having a wonderful time. Witches, gladiators, Egyptian Pharoes and handmaidens, little devils and even curious fish marching and dancing. When the chilly wind got too much, there were plenty of bars and restaurants open if you wanted a meal or just a coffee. All ages mixed happily together. Although there was a police presence, we saw no trouble. After a few coffees and local brandies we danced our way back to Club Tahiti. Grasshopper and I enjoyed the most belly laughs together we'd had in a long time.
