Opinion - More "Surprise and Delight" Please

We stopped and took some photos of the magnificent camel sculpture on the roundabout at the bottom of Femés yesterday and I immediately imagined the surprise and delight on the faces of tourists heading down to Playa Blanca on their first visit to the island. Yaiza Ayuntamiento has rightly taken plenty of criticism over recent years for some dubious planning decisions, but I believe the camels and the new windmill on the roundabout as you come in to Playa Blanca should be applauded as good decisions.

First impressions do count.
