Barbarella, The Mad Cat Lady

Barbarella, known locally as The Mad Cat Lady is celebrating her 11th wedding anniversary in Lanzarote today. This is no ordinary marriage and one that has caught the attention of the Spanish and UK press recently, as her partners are beloved cats Spider & Lugosi. We couldn’t resist asking Barbarella a few questions to find out more…..

Mad Cat Lady Carnival 2009Marriage Certificate Spider Lugosi

When did you first come to Lanzarote and why did you decide to live here?

I came here on holiday with my ex-partner in December 2000 for a week and again in 2001, and after also having visited Tenerife and Gran Canaria before, I thought that this island was the most beautiful of them all. I just fell in love with Lanzarote! One of the reasons that I moved here was that I had had enough of the "rat race" in London, commuting on a crowded train every day until retirement, and also the fact that I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia, and the climate and relaxed lifestyle here really helps with that too.

I had bought a flat in East London in December 1999, and over the next few years the house prices went totally mad and I had the good fortune of its value going up more than double in only a few short years. So I sold that flat and bought a lovely little apartment in Puerto del Carmen, where I moved, together with my 2 cats, in February 2004.

UD Lanzarote 3 UD Ibarra 0

U.D. Lanzarote have now completed the first half of their league campaign and with this win on Sunday they remain unbeaten at home with 8 wins and 2 draws and are one point clear at the top of the league with 39 points.

Considering Rojillos manager Adolfo Pérez aim at the beginning of the season was to reach safety at 40 points with his new and young squad, to say the team is doing well would be quite an understatement.

With the best crowd of the season with a little over 600 fans in a vociferous mood only a victory would do.  Adolfo keeps telling me that the other clubs in this league envy the support Lanzarote has with most unable to attract 200 supporters.

With our great expat and tourist following Adolfo can only thank all the British, Irish, German and a host of other nations for supporting this small club based on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Without this foreign support Adolfo does doubt his side would have only dropped four points at home in the first half of the season.

This home support has no doubt given the side confidence to take on their travels. After a bad away start with just taking two points in their opening four matches the Rojillos away form has began to sparkle with four wins in their last five games on the road.

Adolfo, the club President Domingo Machín and club Director Domingo Gil and all the players keep telling me to thank all expat and tourists who keep turning up as this support is a major reason why the club has done so well this season.

Even though this game against mid table side UD Ibarra was not the finest the team has produced it ended in  read more »

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.

Artenmala1   Artenmala 2

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 »
