La Palma to Gran Canaria

Saturday we took a plane from the island of La Palma to the island of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands. It was about a one hour flight. Here’s a link to my La Palma video.

Leaving La Palma

We took the bus into Las Palmas de Gran Canaria where we are staying.

The big Carnival parade on Gran Canaria was Saturday night. Our hotel is right next to the parade route.

We stood in one place for a couple of hours watching the people with beautiful elaborate costumes go by. Then came a series of buses and semi trucks with rolling bars and lots of people on and following each one.

We watched a while, then walked around some, then went up to the restaurant at the top of our hotel to have dinner. The parade started around 6 and when we were eating at 10:30 it was still going on!
