From Lanzarote with Love

I can’t say that I love Lanzarote. I find this volcanic and barren landscape oppressive
But the people are sweet. And you have to admire their perserverence when it comes to wine, because it can’t be easy growing anything here. They produce wine in the region of La Geria, succeeding mainly in refreshing, mineraly whites from what I can tell
By stroke of luck, we stayed in the Papagayo region, a short trek from the most beautiful beaches on the island
And I discovered these…
They’re my new favourite crisps – a cross between Polish ‘Flipsy’ corn snacks (like massive ‘Whatsits’) and buttered popcorn, yet in appealing bird-like shapes
Talking of birds, the pigeons are pretty cool here too
