The sequel by the same director / writer combo (John Madden and Ol Parker) stars many of the original cast, including Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy and other well-known names... and a few new ones, including an ever sexier looking Richard Gere!

Something new has arrived in Lanzarote and foodies will love it. La Pepa Food Market can be found on the upper floor of Marina Lanzarote in Arrecife.

We were instantly transported to the mainland of Spain when we stepped into La Pepa Food Market, the variety and quality of food stalls on offer is reminiscent of our travels in Sevilla and Valencia, exciting Spanish food with a dash of International cuisine thrown into the mix. There are 14 stalls available on the upper floor of the first building as you arrive at the marina, access is via a lift or escalator situated next to Lizarran or by the chunky outdoor steps planted with flowers.

It’s taken a long time coming but Lanzarote now has a dual carriageway ring road around the capital.  The project to increase the Circunvalacion from a single to dual lane road has cost in the region of 36 million euros. As you can see from this video, it’s size is quite impressive for Lanzarote and has already dramatically improved the traffic flow to the capital, the holiday resort of Costa Teguise, the Puerto de Los Mármoles for our cruise visitors, ferry service and shipping imports, plus access to the north of the island.

Por fin ya se término la circunvalación
