We live in a small lesser known tourist town in South Tenerife. Now the town is split into two parts and separated by a Barranco (Gorge) with it being residential on our side and commercial/touristic on the other. This works quite well usually unless the wind is on the wrong direction which it has been tonight. Being one of the hottest months we spend most on the time outside. Sometimes I even sleep out on the terrace if it's really warm. Tonight so far I've had to listen to "Macarena" done very badly. Various Michael Jackson numbers done as flat as a pancake and 5 games of bingo announced in English, Spanish, German, French and Danish. I can't wait for the next instalment of so called entertainment. In a way it's a good sign as tourism on the Island has been so bad in recent years but for me it comes at a price....................... Do you live in a touristic area? What are the pros and cons?
