Lanzarote Weekend 9-11th January 2015

Art En Mala - A Fabulous Art Gallery In Mala

Art en Mala isn’t a place you will stumble upon – it’s on a very quiet back street you wouldn’t normally turn into. Look for the turning opposite the pharmacy as you drive through Mala in either direction, and you’ll see a small sign, turn into the road and within a few hundred metres, you’ll see the gallery.

We called in to meet owner Luz Gloria López Ramirez, who has built the gallery in a traditional rural building at the side of her own home. She speaks excellent English and is obviously passionate about art. The gallery is superb, with paintings and sculptures from a wide range of artists, both local and from afar. The art is arranged in various rooms, and it’s a joy to discover the next room, with the next set of interesting objects in it! Prices vary from very low impulse type buys to some serious money,  read more »

Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Fazz's Costa Teguise

You might remember we recently reviewed the set menu lunch at Fazz’s in Playa Blanca. We loved the food, but felt the service was average.

Fazz's Bar  Comfy Seating

We were recently out in Costa Teguise and looking for somewhere to eat when we spotted Fazz’s on the promenade there, so we headed inside for an evening meal.

This time both the food and the service were excellent!

The restaurant is a big one, with doors that open onto the beach prom, although they were closed at this time of year. There’s a huge central bar, with shelves that look as though they are bending under the weight of bottles, but we were assured they are meant to be like that! There’s a comfy seating area for people waiting for a table, and a raised dining section.  read more »

Are Repsol planning to leave so soon?

According to an article published in CanaryPorts on the 4th January, it’s entirely possible that Repsol are planning to withdraw the Rowan Renaissance ship within 10 days to start exploration off the coast of Africa.

There’s much speculation if these rumours are true as Repsol were originally due to complete their first survey and have initial findings later this month.

The logistical support ship, Troms Lyra which arrived with the Rowan Renaissance has already left our waters and is currently situated off  read more »

The former IRA members have appeared before the court accused of tobacco smuggling, money laundering and financing terrorism. Five other people were detained in Malaga and Alicante in connection with their arrests.
