It's my day off, so what shall we do, I'm heading up to Haria said Alan to check out our friends house, fancy a walk out to the Mirador, Yes, why not, so off we set. This is one of my favourite walks, its not too long, its not to hard and the views out over Famara and La Graciosa are fabulous. Check out the link for more information on this walk. As we returned to the village I noticed the signs saying Tienda y Taller de Artensania but previously had not bothered about what was inside, I know I should have looked long before this. So this time we stopped and had a look. Its a lovely little place with about four different shops selling local or handmade products and a great cafeteria which was full with people eating, drinking coffee and when I made my way to the counter I was amazed at the variety of home made food that could be purchased to take away or eaten in the cafe. I didn't get any photos of the inside, it would have been rude to have taken any, so you will just have to go and have a look for yourselves. Just to give you an idea of where it is, I have taken some photographs and placed them below in route order to help you find this delightful Mercado. At one end of the Plaza in Haria you have the Ney-Ya bar, opposite this is the town hall, walk down this road keeping the town hall on your left and the hairdressers on your right. At the junction you have the Eckhoff Collection Tienda, (also check this out) and opposite this is the El Mercado. I hope you find it and buy some yummy food.
And another thing as we finished our walk we saw an Elephant a Giraffe, and a Zebra in someone's garden, and No I hadn't been drinking.
