We haven't been anywhere British this year, mainly Spanish but also Italian, French, German, Austrian, Venezuelan, Argentinian, Chinese, etc. Only Cappuccino Maria wanted to scan it and one other Spanish bar glanced at it once, but they know us well. I don't mind them looking at it but won't go anywhere they scan it as I don't want to be tracked.

It makes no sense unless they also check photo ID because the unvacced on Facebook say they just use other people's passed.

Air quality has been poor since last night according to my sensor.

We have been in a British bar & Spanish restaurant & they have insisted we show proof of vaccines before they serve us

We walk every day & a lot of people are wearing masks outside, mainly Spanish but other nationals including Brits are wearing them also, we do not.

The weather is still rubbish this morning, but hopefully it is forecasted to be better by mid week.

Tipsy Terrace sometimes asks for Covid certificates. We went over to Puerto de la Cruz last Tuesday and were asked for them there. Also noticed everyone was wearing a mask outside, whereas hardly anyone does here in south west.

Where have you been that asked for them? We eat out most days at a wide variety of places from Player San Juan to Tamaimo and only been asked for them at Cappuccino Maria so far.

I agree the weather has been the worst we have known it but far better than the UK.

To those who asked about the weather & are arriving soon the weather here can only be described as crap, in almost 40 years of coming here we have never seen so much prolonged poor weather.

At the moment it seems that we have another Clama but it is more like a deep fog with visibilty only just off the beaches, yesterday was the coldest we have known, we went out for dinner, long trousers + long sleeved jumper, we ate inside & we were still cold.

It is still busy, but again very few Brits, make sure you bring your vaccine certs as you will be asked for them
we have found the paper copies are the best.

We were up in hills walking around Chinyero today and weather was good until about 1:30 and then got colder and dull and it chucked it down. Came back to the coast and it was dry and sunny and no wind. Nice sunset and we saw La Gomera and Las  Palmas for the first time since the Calima.

Forecast looks OK for the weekend and then rain followed by strong winds but the forecasts here seem very pessimistic and it always seems to work out better in real life.

We we bought the apartment we had never heard of Calimas but there were two bad ones in Feb 2020 and some minor ones in 2021 but they were over in a few days. This seems to be a longer period of strong winds, sand and rain.

The exchanges over here are offering 1.16, as nophead has said we are in level 4, but we may as be in level 1 or 10, the difference in what restaurants want is madness.

The weather here has been rubbish, we have never known such prolong very strong winds & it has almost been like the UK with the greyness due to the Calima & sand, but of course a lot warmer.

Hopefully we will start to see the winter sun that the Canaries is renown for,  but the rain did wake us up this morning, but it has been a loverly afternoon.

Pilgrim, the wind has dropped considerably and the temperature is  warm. Life is good.
