    Home and Garden Re: Is it true about the weather in November?

    Heh. The first few times I went through La Oratava by bus, I thought it was a particularly ugly town. You need to get away from the bus station before Oratava reveals its charm.

    Advice wanted Re: What's the best thing about Tenerife?

    I even had a delicious gofio pudding in San Sebastian. But then, stupidly, I bought a kilogram of gofio which took me almost two years to use up. That was hard work.

    I haven't tried aguardiente,...

    Advice wanted Re: What's the best thing about Tenerife?

    And the best thing about La Gomera is the incredible view back to Tenerife from the hills above Hermigua.

    Oh, and the fabulous restaurants in Valle Gran Rey, the most laid-back resort in the world.
