  Bar La Oficina - Puerto del Rosario
Posted by: TamaraEnLaPlaya - 18-01-2020, 11:08 PM - Forum: Bars & Restaurants - No Replies

Discovered this bar courtesy of my Grua driver at 7am the other morning! Great coffee, didn't try any food but a small variety of local dishes on the menu.
Didn't look anything from the outside but quite large and fascinating inside. There are loads of old artifacts inside: rows of goat bells, 2 Trios (an old agri implement made of wood with stones set into it to break up ground), an enormous industrial weighing scale, a water filter system, various pots, sewing machine, and several items that I've got no idea what they were! Worth a visit and a cup of coffee or something stronger! Very friendly guy behind the bar. Bathroom excellent.

  Eight New Wind Turbines in the Puerto del Rosario Municipality
Posted by: Captain Sensible - 16-01-2020, 09:08 AM - Forum: Environmental - Replies (7)

The first of 8 new wind turbines is being put up in the Puerto del Rosario Municipality.

There will be a total of 8, in 3 different locations - El Time, La Asomada amd La Matilla.

The turbines will produce enough electricity to supply 42,000 homes - which is about 3 times the amount needed for consumption in Puerto del Rosario.

  Satellite caravan over Fuerteventura
Posted by: TamaraEnLaPlaya - 13-01-2020, 08:26 PM - Forum: Environmental - No Replies

At about 7.30pm today I observed a caravan of approximately 15 satellites going over Fuerte, roughly SW to NE. Amazing sight! Not sure if they stay on the same track or what their orbit time is, but worth looking out for.

  Royal Kookabura furniture store

Hi All,

Anyone any experiences good or bad?
We are putting together an order to furnish our apartment and really like this store.
We have been in a number of times, lovely quirky pieces and traditional furniture.
Seems they deliver and put together pieces where needed.
They will store for 2 months, longer if paid in full after this.
I noticed a write up in the Hoy magazine in December.

  Need some help with our garden
Posted by: Si Tie - 07-01-2020, 10:03 AM - Forum: General Discussions - Replies (24)

We have a place in Caleta.  Its a corner plot.  Without going into details we have had issues with the last tenant and
thankfully they are out.  Ive been over and done most of the repairs but one of the next jobs is the garden.  When I say
garden the house is wrapped on two sides with pecan (Not sure if thats how you spell it).  We used to have decorative stones
with plants and an irrigation system but all that is gone.   Whilst we are not looking to put an irrigation system back.  Where can I buy new pecan
and maybe get hold of some decorative stones.  If we did put some plants back where is good for pots and what plants are
the best.  Hopefully will have new tenants soon who will look after any plants.  But maybe looking at plants that can survive
months without water.

  Volcanic activity in Canary Islands 2020
Posted by: jand - 03-01-2020, 07:48 PM - Forum: Environmental - Replies (9)

The first New Years update courtesy of Enrique.


"activity in Tenerife, in addition to the caldera is the south dorsal in the area of vilaflor de chasna, and adeje. Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.- 25/12/2019-in the 3-day chart we appreciate something, but especially in the 15-day chart, it is clearly appreciated as regional seismic tensions are affecting the whole area Central and south of the island, both those coming from the area of the dorsal in direction east - west as those coming in north - south direction.

1.- We start by a lonely deep Earthquake today on the north coast of the teno massif with a magnitude of 1.8 and at a depth of 42 km, which will surely be relocalizarán. It's soon to say nothing, if it had been under the area of caldera or surroundings, it wouldn't be too much, it could be a precursor

2.- yesterday if it is new, we have had a little seismicity and microsismicidad with three Events in the area of adeje about 4.9-5.5 KM DEEP, to which one of antesdeayer and another is joined on the 25th. December, just in the area where the seismic swarms of October 2016, October 2017 and November 2018 were produced, which could be the start of something in the next few weeks, as in 2019 We haven't had it... we'll see what happens

3.- also the year has been fired with a lot of activity in the area of the swarm of the south dorsal in the area of vilaflor of chasna and north of arona, with more than a dozen earthquakes in the last 15 days At depths between 7 and 11 km deep and with a remarkable Earthquake of magnitude 2.4 to 9 km, since it follows the activity of that area where every day looks clearer that there is a bag or Accumulation of magma that responds to regional efforts with seismicity.

4.- and what to say about the caldera area, where regional efforts are noticed on the central building, aligned in two main directions, which cross right in the peak of the teide. One is the alignment teide pico viejo and the other is from the teide to the south leaving the caldera through the area of Boca de tauce. This lineup goes to the area of adeje, on the line where the seismic swarms of October 2016, October 2017 and November 2018 were produced, which as I said before, could be the beginning of Something in the next few weeks, since in 2019 we haven't had it... we'll see what happens

5.- in the area of the altos de fasnia we have had a couple of earthquakes located, one of them only 3 km deep indicating regional efforts, as not.

6.- Finally the area of the volcano in the middle where there are endless earthquakes, but without concentrating on a concrete point, for lack of seismic stations especially in the area of Gran Canaria, which causes a dispersion Data that has no arrangement or end. Involcan gives you a thousand laps in the area to ign.

And by the way, talking about involcan, in its last guayota, lower the amount of Co2 or carbon dioxide issued by the pico del teide and upload the temperature of the fumaroles for the second week in a row, we will see what takes us all this.

And we don't improve with the ign, backwards, we are in the hands of people who increasingly invest in safety of the inhabitants and visitors of the island. The fact is that the ign only matters to be or say things face to the gallery, data the less, and every time is minor, they only use it for scientific articles, presentations to raise funds and little professional jobs.

In this aspect, they should make an obvious improvement in the regulated working methods of their technicians, especially in the aspect of safety, (sampling gases without gloves) that we still do not know for what they are, since they do not bother to explain, We will have to wait for the corresponding publication in a scientific magazine in a few years. Ahhh, and that no one gets in the middle, that they delete it from the list, say that they have been trying with me for years and a lot of the people I know and talk about I remind you the survey.. (Enrique)"

PS: for clear and open seismic and volcanic information. No to the censorship of the IGN Canary Islands.
