Am ajuns in alta parte de insula, tot pe tarm, in El Medano. Un loc superb, un fel de Sighisoara la ocean. O plaja intinsa, cu un nisip negru, acoperit de un strat fin de nisip auriu, care creeaza niste modele frumoase cand sunt spalate de valuri.
Localitatea e micuta, un amestec de turisti si localnici, dar linistit, fara prea multe magazine, fara localuri unde esti tras de maneca, cu o zarva placuta, care nu depaseste sunetul valurilor.
Ba chiar am intalnit si artizani care isi vand creatiile pe faleza, lucru care m-a incurajat. In statiunile mai mari nu poti face asta fara avize si autorizatii, care sunt mai greu de obtinut. Si oriunde priveai in jur, copii, de toate varstele, care se jucau si cantau. Locul asta mi-a lasat o senzatie placuta, din aceea de "mai venim".
Apoi, ca sa continuam pe aceeasi directie boema, am vizitat o alta plaja, in Las Galletas (in traducere libera "biscuitii"). Liniste si aici, oameni putini, iar seara ne-am bucurat de un concert live la baruletul de pe plaja.
EN: It turns out that somehow, in a mysterious and tricky way, the ocean gets under your skin and to your brain and triggers a metamorphosis in your thoughts. How would I otherwise explain that all the things I'm painting here are wattery, sunny and colourful? The turtle was a must, because people here dive and swim with them. For now, I'm not really ok with underwater (need to solve this, cause I'm pisces and it's strange), so I've chosen to paint it:))
We went on along the beach and found this beautiful place, called El Medano. It's a small city, a mixture of tourists and locals, peaceful and quite, whith few shops which look chic, some small restaurants, with delicious and plentyfull food. Really the place where you want to come back (that's why we chose to stay overnight, just like that:) along the beach there where handmade artists selling their creations and this was so good to see.
And to keep up with the hippie spirit, we visited another special place, Las Galletas (it means "the buiscuits"). Here, we enjoyed some drinks at a nice beach-bar, where in the evening we danced on live music, sourrounded by the ocean waves and the breeze.
It feels that here, on the island, there's life for all tastes and the people who arrive get caught by spring and never want to move on:)
