I'm back from a week in Tenerife.
- Tenerife is properly warm and sunny, even if it was a bit windy and cloudy at times this week
- Tourist resort Irish pubs are still an abomination, even on St.Patrick's day
- I walked up a shedload of hills, and down even more, and this was awesome
- Various interlocking patches of burn and tan-line mark a week of successful vitamin D generation
- However, the weather in Rotterdam is forecast to remain freezing and dull for another week. NOT ON, ROTTERDAM.
- There will be photos, but only once I'm more together
- Plane journeys with food poisoning. I can really strongly disrecommmend them.

Especially on St Patrick's day, I'd have thought.

I had hoped that it might be busy enough that there might be something more like a party, but it didn't work out that way. It was busy, but still mostly with older couples sat two by two round their little tables, not talking to each other or anyone else while listening to someone sing badly, which seems to be the default for Tenerife nightlife in March at least.

I mean, a load of drunk young lads who are not in any way Irish but at least having a laugh would have been a significant improvement.
