Feliz Cumpleaņos a mi and its a warm 28 degree day! Nursing a sangria hangover we have a delicious cooked breakfast before jumping on the 9am bus from Playa Bastian to the inland Teguise markets - the oldest in Lanzarote. Here we find 100's of stalls selling everything from toe rings and cactus muffins to 'genuine' fake handbags. After half an hour we've seen most of it but have another 2.5 ...

We finally make it to the city, where I ...
... the two of us so we took turns taking naps. Had the worst ear pain as we began our decent which was unpleasant to say the least. But finally the island was in sight! It was such a beautiful view from the plane and we were so excited for the warm weather, so it was quite disappointing to find it was actually a bit chilly once we got off the plane.
