We enjoyed our week of hill walking on Gran Canaria. Here are some pics to show how different the island's landscape is.

This is what we came for. Spectacular rocks in the center of the mountainous isle.

Entertaining but easy walking routes passing old villages like El Chorillo which is built like an eagle's nest between rocky peaks.

Daily life below the West coast cliffs.

The most common picture of Gran Canaria is the one of the Maspalomas Dunes. I had to take care not to catch any naked person on the photo. Walking across the area you get the impression that 2 of 3 people are undressed, thereof 90% are male - most of them not really young - and thereof 90% are gay.

Meanwhile my 12-week-schedule to the London Marathon has started. I am already behind my targets, albeit not seriously. The next 3 weeks will tell if the odd knee is ready to cope with higher mileage.
