Finca Verdeaurora

Logo completoFinca Verdeaurora.

On the Finca Verdeaurora we are committed to ecology since 7 years, the moment that Luis Mesa – the owner – decided to plant 400 olive trees with the goal to become the first producer of ecological olive oil of Fuerteventura. This oil stands out by its exquisite taste and aroma, thanks to our full control of the entire process: care taking of the trees and their fruits, harvesting, processing (we have an ecology-certified press), and the bottling. We have the European and Canarian certificates for ecologic farming.

The Apañada.

17marzo11"La Apañada" is the collection by the herds of all free roaming goats on Fuerteventura to a central point in order to return them to the rightful owner. The practice of letting the animals run freely is part of the local folklore, but although it looks like a disorganised "letting-go", it is much controlled by the Fuerteventura Agricultural Department.

BLACKOUT – Marc Elsberg.

Black-Out-001-webBLACKOUT – Morgen ist es zu spät ist ein Techno-Thriller von Marc Elsberg, der in näherer Zukunft und hauptsächlich in Europa spielt. Der Roman erzählt über die katastrophalen Auswirkungen eines großflächigen Stromausfalls in Europa.
Obwohl ich "Techno-Thriller" geschrieben habe, ist der "Techno"teil realistisch, nicht übertrieben, überschaubar und dient zur Hintergrundinfo um die Handlungen besser zu verstehen. Dieses Buch ist also auch für Leser "die es nicht so mit Technik haben" weil Elsberg die Kunst versteht das technische an den absolut hinreisenden Handlungen unterzuordnen. Sowohl Männer als Frauen in meiner Umgebung haben dieses Buch mit extrem viel Mühe hinlegen müssen; sonnst gäbe es schlaflose Nächte. Einfach ein Muss! (Spiegel Bestseller)

Lolo en Bangkok

Lolo-001-webUna simpática novela que narra las aventuras y desventuras de un leonés de pueblo que nunca ha salido de su comarca, y al que un amigo convence para hacer sólo su primer viaje al extranjero, y no a cualquier ciudad, sino a Bangkok.
A través de las páginas iremos conociendo a un Lolo que sin necesidad de conocer idiomas, pero sí con una personalidad de muchos recursos, llega tras un accidentado viaje (que arranca al lector un par de buenas carcajadas), a esta tan desconocida ciudad para él, y donde conocerá a un grupo de sordomudos tailandeses con los que entablará una bonita amistad y que le irán aconsejando qué visitar en esta carismática ciudad. Un recorrido por su cultura, su gastronomía, sus gentes (muchas de ellas honradas y otras algo más picarescas) que nos mostrará que esta ciudad de contrastes, de la que nadie que la haya visitado se ha podido olvidar, puede ofrecer mucho más que su tristemente conocido turismo sexual.

Lace in Fuerteventura

dw84pzDepending on the consulted source of information, lace was introduced to the Canary Islands in the 19th century from mainland Spain or from Madeira. Before commercialisation by English entrepreneurs, making lace on Fuerteventura was a domestic activity. It soon became famous for its quality and the export to the UK and USA was booming during 1890 - 1910. Export to Germany and France followed soon. Main areas of production on Fuerteventura were Lajares, La Oliva and Betancuria. The materials that were used are linen, batiste, silk and poplin, depending on the final product.

A Goat Story.

A Goat Story.

FOTO1

Introduction.
Whenever you decide to discover the beautiful spots on this island, whether it is on the shore or inland, you may have a reasonable chance to encounter free-walking goats, in herds or alone, searching for the scarce vegetation that represents their daily meal. You might then think of these creatures that they "just fill in the local picture" and – if you are lucky – you might be able to take some nice pictures of them for at home. (PIC) But do you realise that these animals were fundamental in the development of Fuerteventura and even to the development of mankind in general? No? Well let me tell you a bit "Goaty Stuff"...

EVO is a non-lucrative association that has been founded to re-create a union between people to re-establish a social interaction.
