Jaro and his bike are now in Spain (2nd week - February/17).....


Back in the port of Playa Santiago - the weather here is nice and warm - usually low 20's.

Bought myself a Bontrager "Ion 100 R"headlight for my bike at the local bike store in Playa Santiago - tiny little thing weighs almost nothing, yet has quite a powerful light. Just what the doctor ordered, for that long dark tunnel on the GM-3 from Los Roques - last time down, I went over the median because I could not see it. Battery is rechargeable via USB plug - very convenient.

 
Dead end road in the abandoned part of Santa Ana.  The hill on the right is actually the airport of La Gomera, code GMZ.

 
This path heading down to and along the escarpment in Santa Ana, is only partly navigable by road bike, with stairways in a few places.


A garden in the gated community in Santa Ana.

Just west of Playa Santiago, high upon the plateau, is some land that looks like it was being developed for a new community, however, most of the project was abandoned, leaving only a couple of small gated communities called Santa Ana.
