The History of Spanish Africa

"I say that there are parts of spain and africa. I'm not trying to be tricky and play with words. I'm not saying that. Spain used to have colonies in africa. Although that's true. I'm also not trying to define the canary islands. Which are part of spain off the coast of africa as being in africa. I mean in the most literal sense possible. That part of spain is in africa. There are two very small spanish cities located on the peninsula which are on the african mainland ordering morocco and malia and their very existence as you probably would expect are due to historical quirks happenstance due to geography. Spain has always had a close relationship with africa finishes based in carthage in. What is today. Tunisia established settlements on the spanish coast. The roman province of hispania was part of a greater empire that included all of north africa. Which bordered the mediterranean after the roman empire fell islamic moors from north africa conquered and controlled spain for over seven hundred years. So there's always been a back and forth between north africa in the peninsula and malia both spanish territories in africa have different yet similar histories despite being about one hundred and thirty miles apart from each other. Sita is located directly across the sea from gibraltar. So if you ever want stump someone asks them. What country lies. Directly south of gibraltar and what country lies. North of gibraltar. answer is the same. Spain is on both ends. Sierra makes the counterpart to gibraltar for the pillars of hercules which the ancient names of the two promontories which guarded the strait of gibraltar. As with most everything in the region it has an ancient history. Carthage martina and numidians all control the area. Before the romans the you me add caliphate controlled it for centuries when the caliphate of cordoba fell in ten thirty one it was then passed between various north african kingdoms with support from various kingdoms in the iberian peninsula.

Wandering Madrid and talking Cost of Living in Spain

"Of all i will duck into my local cafe and get a cup of coffee. We'll see how much a cup of coffee costs. Let's sit down. And i'll run through some comparisons with cost of living in spain and other cities as around the world. I went out and opponents. Room tara potter so i got my cup of coffee. I ordered a which is a short coffee. Little splash of milk. My coffee came to the princely sum of one euro and forty cents pretty much suspended price madrid and spain in here with the social distancing measures in effect. I'm just telling you look man chalkboard to see what they thought on offer for food. The on as i think the average price of a fairly representative i would say Typical baas around the campus little on the average price seems to be eight or nine years for iraq. You on another point. Generous portions of food which can be shared between two or three people. I suppose so. We've got seven euros with bob. Problems seven plates of hamilton and kosovo seven euros of seven-year-olds snails. Got gotta call is six. We got sandwiches. Ideals were about four euros. Three hundred fifty super affordable. Some things that do surprise of which. I consider a little bit pricey i suppose is some seafood can be expensive even though spain is a nature of seafood consumers. But certainly things like Octopus for example. I can see arafura of purple. I like data which is a galaxy in style octopus fifteen-year-olds for plate octopus got up. There chip it on his which some of my favorites like frying baby cussing fish. I suppose and eleven euros for play to chop beatles lusa which are absolutely delicious. I must say if we're talking about beer and wine in our like this where i am now about growth little kanye which is about two hundred mils of beer. It's going to cost something like one. Thirteen one forty. Maybe one fifty a large science at aa probably about two years to fifty so very affordable wine around the same price for a small glass of wine fairly normal local one. I suppose it's gonna cost you between one eight hundred eighty something like that but why wanted to run through the kind of ranking of spanish cities in terms of their affordability living the cost of living. It's a question. I've been asked quite a lot in the past from listeners. Interested in moving to spain. How much things cost rents accommodation utility bills and back kind of thing and this is run through the list of cities in terms of cost of living as twenty twenty. According to my research the most expensive city in terms of cost of living is actually be bad. And that doesn't surprise me. I've heard that me. Bow son sebastian. Up in the north of spain expensive cities number two on the list so the second most expensive city in spain is cheap. Celona and again. This does not surprise me mean i suppose. Many people would imagine that madrid being capital city would be more expensive now. It seems to me rental prices and property prices between madrid and barcelona fairly similar course does tend to be a little bit more expensive in. Barcelona is your daily cost of living. The third most expensive city is of course madrid which makes sense for a capital city european capital again. I've got to say in my experience of european capital cities. Madrid has got to be up there with some of the most affordable capital cities that you could live in fourth most expensive as photographer number. Five is pulmoddai orca number six on the list surprisingly granada down and luthier the seventh. Most expensive is number. Eight is valencia. Now that's interesting series so far down the list of expensive cities because it is spain's third largest city so considering it signs an affordable city to live in number nine on the list is santa cruz veterinary on the island. The canarian island of tenor eighth number. Ten is seville number. Eleven on the list is malika a number twelve. My list is less thomas on the canary islands. Right then so. I'm going to make a little comparison. Classic sound of the someone pumping on the whole and outside the bar because there is some kind of truck which is stopped in the middle of the street. Let's hope that doesn't continue. Let's look living cost of living comparison between london and madrid for example pseudo coating to my research you would need around two thousand eight hundred sixty three pounds all three thousand three hundred and forty three euros in madrid to maintain the same standard of life that you can have which i need that would happen. Descended into some chaos and some of the guys in the bar won't stop the heads out the door to to see what's going on out there say place at half past twelve in the afternoon drinking. A cup of coffee never announces already on the wine. I met there still a little bit early for me right. Let's see if i can get this out. So the cost of living comparison between london and madrid. One trying to say is that to maintain the same standard of life that you can have in london with four thousand seven hundred you would only need two thousand eight hundred sixty three pounds to have the same standard of life

The history of potatoes

"Like corn and tomatoes, the potato was born in the Americas before it conquered the world, they come from the spine of mountains that run all the way down from from Chile all the way up through the Andes and really into the Rocky Mountains Rebecca Earl is a historian at the University of Warwick where she focuses on the history of food and on the history of Spanish America and potatoes are bang in the middle of her ven diagram potatoes are from the. Andes that much is clear. The earliest wild potato ancestor that's been identified is from the shores of Lake. TITICACA on the Peruvian side but there are a lot of potato varieties claimed by a lot of folks in the region. In fact, there have been some recent disputes between Chile and Peru over attempts by Peru to patent whole variety number of potatoes as being Peruvian and of it and part of our national patrimony. So where they originate doesn't sit so neatly. Onto national frontiers, wild potatoes bread, and down the America's they've even been found in Utah but it wasn't until about eight thousand years ago. The people in the Andes started to domesticate these kind of unpromising marble sized super bitter tubers. Potatoes came to form a really important part of life in the Andes because they can grow an incredibly inhospitable conditions I've traveled in the Andes. In Peru and not only did I get intense altitude sickness but people farming there look like. They're hanging off the side of the mountains the Andes. Are Super Tall and super steep. It's just rough terrain for growing things in the whole of Peru only something like three percent of the land is classified suitable for growing crops compared to twenty one percent of the US but for the potato, no problem at flourishes in those conditions. So yeah, the potato was a big deal in the region, but it was still the food of the people it was essential not special. Unlike the other big American staple corn planting of the maize crop was something that the Inca himself oversaw of the ruler himself planted symbolic wro of as as part of a big ceremony and there was a team priests who would prey over the course of the year to ensure good maize harvest and it was a whole lot of ritual associated with with maize the empire. was not very interested in potatoes. They saw potatoes kind of lowly everyday food that didn't have great spiritual resonance Mrs Going to be a theme with the potato that said on that lowly local level. The potato did have spiritual resonance. It was a day. T called the potato mother who looked over the potato harvest and ensured that it grew well. So it was very important not. Just in terms of Diet. But in terms of kind of ritual spiritual life on village, this was something the Spanish conquistadors picked up on right away when they showed up in the fifteen hundreds. So they said Oh these the people here eat a kind of route, which is the bread of the Indians as they put it they were always comparing it back and forth to. European. Bread they said it is their bread which meant it was the staple. It was the backbone of the Diet that said the Spaniards knew it didn't taste like bread. This is how a Spaniard described the potato. It's the very first written description that survives potatoes are something like Spanish truffles aside from being a bit bigger and not as tasty. They said potatoes, they are a thing. Like chestnut or a bit like a truffle oil parsnips they grow underground there were route and they eat them the way that we parsnips of the way that we eat chestnuts. So they quickly drew connections between. A variety of different things? Some root vegetables like Parsnips, turnips, and somethings like chestnuts that we might not think a potato is exactly like the texture is not on similar. If you bake a chestnut, you end up with something a bit mealy but like a potato Europeans brought this new truffle chestnut food back to Europe with them although we don't know exactly when like many crops that have spread around the world people didn't always record when they first saw it. It seems like the potato landed on the shores of Europe somewhere in. The second half of the fifteen hundreds I to the Canary Islands and then to mainland Spain and from there they spread across Europe and around the world. But in terms of how potatoes caught on, there's an old story that has stuck around for a long time. It's almost become conventional wisdom and it's that the peasants in Europe were pretty reluctant to give potatoes a try the old story is that peasants are inherently conservative and will not do anything new. They will not try unfamiliar cultivation techniques they won't eat new food they're they're basically backward-looking and highly superstitious and regard the novel with skepticism. So there's an old story that says peasants looked at potatoes and they said this food is not in the Bible we will not eat it and they said our grandparents didn't grow this food and we will not grow it added to that. There was the unfortunate fact that the potato is part of. The. Same Botanical family of the deadly nightshade. So that's kind of suspect and the potato doesn't grow from seed like a normal crop instead you so little bits of the potato the ground I mean, why would you trust plant like that? Europeans didn't understand this. They thought it was the food of the devil. There's a whole lot of old writing from decades. By historians who say that, Europeans looked potatoes and when they saw them, they saw something freaky on weird.

Why Is Carmine, a Dye Made from Bugs, So Popular?

"Red Velvet cake and strawberry ice cream aren't only in the. They'll satisfy your sweet tooth. They likely share common ingredient made from a not so common source that gives them their red to pink Hue. That's Carmen a natural Red Dye, also labelled as cockatiel extract, e, One, twenty or natural, red dye four, and it owes its beauty to a teeny tiny bug, the female coach Neil Bug to be precise. In addition to its possible gross out factor, this tasteless FDA approved extract has a history full of. and. Intrigue a Betsy Ross even used this bright red dye to make red stripes on the very first American flag. The Koch Neil is a slate bug that feeds on prickly pear. Plants grown throughout Mexico South America southwestern United States, and the Canary Islands off the coast of Spain. The male Cockatiel plays its own unique role in nature, but it's the wingless legless female that interests dye makers. If you go looking for her, you won't find her vibrant red bounty on display. The female Koch Neal's grey exterior is covered in a white powder that protects her from predators as well as the scorching sun. And since the juice from CACTI her only source of nutrition, she boroughs in his. A bit stubborn about releasing her hold. In order to harvest the Koch Neil, the prickly pear pads are cut and brought to factories so that the bugs can be pulled out and processed, but it takes some serious people power. Approximately seventy thousand continentals are needed to create just one pound of die. That's a little less than half a kilo. Once harvested bugs are dried ground and mixed alcohol, solution or other compounds like borax. They give way to a vibrant long-lasting die that can be used to make colors from scarlet purple to pink to Peach. have been used to color everything from textiles to pottery, since the Neolithic period or New Stone Age with the majority, sourced from vegetables, plants and trees. Bugs have had their place to not only the Koch. Neil, another elusive die associated with wealth enroll status. Tyrian purple was made from the glands of snails. Neil bug is native to Mesoamerica. The AZTECS are believed to be the first to use Carmen to fill their lives with stunning shades of Crimson, when Spanish colonizers arrived in the Americas learned about Carmen and built enormous wealth by monopolizing the cockatiel market Spain kept the source of the color secret, and even made export the die a legal punishable by death. Coveted by the wealthy. The Royal Family is in the artist's crossed Europe. This die created fertile ground for contention. Those cumbersome and secretive production methods certainly made Carmen expensive. The car itself was an explosive part of Carmen's mystery and popularity. We spoke with Amy Butler. Greenfield author of the perfect read via email. She said red is the color of blood fired that end desire, and we can't help it. Respond to it on many levels. It makes her eyes dilate, and our breath come faster, and it's freighted with symbolic meaning. Also there are very few natural dyes that make a lasting bright true read so good ones had the value of rarity. Ounce ounce. Kacha new is the most powerful natural red dye in the world. That's why it was prized. When industrialization arrived in the mid eighteen hundreds, the demand for textiles increased dramatically and created a need for more cost effective dies. Chemists began to use petroleum and coal to formulate synthetic ones ultimately reducing the need for the Cockatiel bug. The shift towards synthetics pushed Carmen to the background, but it didn't disappear, and now it's making a comeback. Showing up on ingredient lists for anything from cake POPs to lipstick. Greenfield said when reports started linking synthetic grads to cancer and hyperactivity, and as people started taking an interest in natural foods in general, the market for catch. Neil began to rebound. So if Carmen is a natural product without the negative long-term effects of why did the coffee giant starbucks along with numerous other companies? Stop using it to add colour to their products. Well Carmen is safe for the majority of people can cause an allergic reaction, and besides that safety concern folks like Vegetarians vegans and people who keep kosher helped advocate for the change, but no matter whether you find eating a bug, appalling, fascinating or dangerous for such a tiny insect. The Koch Neil Bug has certainly left a vivid mark on culture, beating attractions, the beauty and power of red.

A Decade Of Adventures With Professional Volleyball Player Marisa Field

"Though. Morita the question of when it comes on when you're younger than athlete will. Your bigger during the goal is to achieve. Actually I was just thinking about this. I used to have this like. I don't know way back when when you had like. Msn Messenger thing or ICQ like those instant messaging things on your computer like my little bio thing was like pro volleyballer end like it was kind of a joke. 'cause like I didn't even know what that meant at the time. Just like yeah. That sounds good. Like Appropriately but had no idea like how it was going to get there what that bed so I guess I was always like kind of an idea in the head but actually was kind of a nerd in high school actually was planning to be a chemist I went to university with the intention of that and volleyball took over my life so okay so when you say you're going to be him if like how do you feel that working out like Nafta type stuff like why can't we be wasn't entirely sure but I just chemistry high school. I started my first year at college in my hometown. Action with the intention doing or years volleyball but graduating ending chemistry after the whole course life change. That's awesome so so you had your MFN bio theme Pro Volleyball Claire. So when you wrote that in life started happening had you start thin are i. How can I make this reality? Yeah I think Actually like I was just trying to remember when I started playing volleyball. I think I was about while which is crazy now to think about says while is actually been two decades now. I've been playing volleyball thirty. Two ounce so yeah. It's Kinda crazy but I think the starting kind of jump off point for me was when I made team be see from. Abc and I made that provincial team when I was like or teen I think and Is your calling you very raw. Was the word they used for Terrible but I jumped really high back then. I guess I'd potential so they took me and I didn't interview That year the year after something for them I think it had something like one day. I WANNA wear like a maple leafs on my back in fourteen candidate ahead said that Ben in nearly no like what it took to get there but eventually became a path so dover I know there's Tony was the have the application you know. They say. I want to be in Olympia and I WANNA don't own and do all these things. People atoms dry. Yeah like you can't do that to. How did you keep your mind? That like may laugh at my drain on a chase them all like originally when I started playing volleyball. I didn't even really WANNA play Bible like I started dance when I was like three years old. So I dance all the way up until the end of my high school. And my mom had kinda like encourage Mir Gently pushed me to play volleyball and at the time like basketball. More which is binding workers like ended up deciding basketball's too much running for me so I ended up. I was doing all three things. That was dancing. Anos playing volleyball and basketball into high school and then I can window basketball and then faced out dance. Bowling Ball's seemed like a better future option to go with so I started college. I graduated sixteen so a super young and I had offers to go to other schools like in the states and other Kadian universities ended up wanting to just stay home and I had really good the program at it was actually called back in but it's the UCLA now University of British Columbia Okanagan so that was in Colona and the coach was Steve. Manual was one of my mentor coaches still to this day. He kind of had a big role to play in my progression volleyball. So after my first year there recruited to go to U B C in Vancouver with Doug Rhymer in his team and it was kind of scary. Move to consider and I went to a two years with Steve Cohen than ended up making a transfer to UC Vancouver in coober into the it's called CIS fact then it's like all changed Old Sport now like a Canadian University system so I ended up going there my third year and after my first year there. I actually got invited to try out for the national team so just kind of like crazy because after my first year. Ub See a lot of the players on ABC. Were playing on the national team or not was. Kinda like became more of a realistic goal. I guess you'd say and I was like you know maybe after a couple more years like chance tryout and it was just kind of a really strange process how I ended up getting a tryout and then ended up making it and as when I was nineteen and so things just took off from there. Wow so he graduated at fifteen Lloyd. just win for team into transitioning to the next level. Yeah so like when I started I was still kind of didn't really have the idea like my first year. I was like okay. I'm going to chemistry and whatever tall Canadian still pretty nerdy. Still Pretty that. I think when I got recruited to go to the CIS and go play for a UPC IN VANCOUVER. That was kind of like okay. Maybe things can kind of progressing go ahead and they gotta also the gentle nudge from my coach. There Steve Manual. That you know you can stay here but basically I'm kicking out because I want you to go play at the higher level and Sierra potential so that was kind of Mike Start off point in the program with Doug Rhymer Jesse Knight was coach at the time and they really Hannah propelled my career in and getting me onto the national team and then I ended up finishing up two more years with. Ub See we won two national championships back to back. Actually and then they went onto win for more after I graduated in a row but Selena was kind of the start of my national team career when I was nineteen and then just retired from that like a year ago. So I'm relying on your La- calendar something you said if you ride a story about your journey it will be. I believe instead a decade of venture. But when you when you wrote that in your mind what we've thinking it's just kind of funny actually because I saw graduated from U B C in two thousand nine and then a number of the national team and then went to play pro for my first season abroad. Enso's like the two thousand nine going into two thousand. Ten was my first year in Europe. I was in Spain and the Canary Islands with my teammates Page and it was just like my funniest stories of life and pro. Come from this season it was just like so ridiculous in so many ways home at Christmas. Like almost didn't come back but when back and finish it out and yeah just finding those kind of the start of my career so the last decade now as I go back and forth on wrapping up in this decade. But yet it's just been. I've been all over Europe late in the Philippines. It's been ten years eleven years with team Canada and yet it's just been a lot of adventures all over the world so I think that sums it up for me your password. Kobe just ridiculous. I've had to in that time. Also pretty full of awesome so going back to the volleyball in making the kind of play with higher compensation had you again was an adjustment to your mentality how you approached the game or the always the same I think definitely I mean developed. I think even from kind of a young age I had like sort of athletic discipline instilled into me. If you from LIKE DANCE. Three in that was like a very disciplined Pity so I think I just always kind of had that. I think that's just part of my character. Personality is kind of like the athlete mindset but definitely like as I progressed higher up in levels that kind of became more of like my dreams once I made team Canada became okay analysis become an Olympian and so that was the focus and that sort of worked towards a win to two Olympic qualifiers A. Twenty twelve in two thousand sixteen. Very narrowly missed the twenty. Sixteen qualification end. So that was pretty heartbreaking but that was kind of the goal that was like why played volleyball was always to hopefully get to the Olympics. One day and that was Kinda what fueled him what. Push me through a lot of difficult times for sure and persevered through a lot of things and a lot of crazy seasons abroad in Europe pro. And and all that but Yeah I think that was always. My dream unfortunately didn't happen but had a lot of a lot of adventures along the way trying to get

Sailing Successes: Tania Aebi & Sarah Dekker

"Forward slash bedtime. History a big. Thank you to those. Who donated already. Have you ever seen a sailboat? A sailboat is different from a motorized boat because instead of a motor it uses wind pushing the sales to move it across the water sailboats. Have been around for a very long time but people still use sailboats today to sail in places all over the ocean. Some new just for fun others do it as a race. Many world records have been set by people who've sailed boats around the entire world. Tonight we're going to learn about two women who went on at mazing adventures sailboats. Our story begins in Nineteen eighty-four with Tanya Ebi. A young sixteen year old girl. Who was living with her father when he decided to sail his boat all the way across the Atlantic Ocean with Tanya and her siblings even though they knew little about sailing they sailed from England to Spain to Portugal to Morocco. The Canary Islands the Caribbean and back to New York City after finishing high school. Tanya wasn't sure what to do with their life. It was time to go to college but she didn't feel ready for it and didn't know what else to do. Her father gave her two choices he could pay for college or she could use the money to buy a boat and sail around the world. It was a big challenge in. Tanya made the choice to start sailing. She thought she could go on it with her friends and just have a good time. No her father said you have to go on the boat alone and you have to make the voyage by yourself. He knew was a chance for her to grow on her own. So in May nineteen eighty five Tanya and her little black cat named Tarzan set sail from New York in her boat which they named the Varuna. Many people said it was too dangerous for to go but she went anyway. Tanya started the trip thinking should only sell the Bermuda then. Once she was there she headed to the next point. Which was the island of Saint Thomas in the Caribbean as she went she learned more about sailing because she had very little experience before she left. She had lots of quiet time to herself. She said was very good for her. It gave her chance to think about her life to read to play with her cat and to focus on getting to the next point of Edge sometimes. She played her guitar other time. She wrote letters one day. It began to rain and a storm surrounded her boat. We've crashed against the side of the boat and water splashed into it. She was scared and didn't know if she could continue on but she realized the only way she could survive was to keep going and she did just that for two and a half years. Tanya continued her voyage through the Great Barrier Reef Past Australia than up through the Indian Ocean the Mediterranean and finally through the Atlantic Ocean until she returned home to New York Tanya became the first woman in a very young when at that to circle the entire world on a sailboat. When the news found out about her trip people all over the world were talking about her amazing voyage. The president at the time Ronald Reagan sent her a message. Which said you set your energy in youth against an ancient challenge on the ageless sees and you triumphed twenty. Five years later a woman named Laura. Dekker wanted to break. Tania's record and be the youngest woman to circle the globe by boat. She was sixteen years old at the time Laura was born in New Zealand during a seven year sailing trip by her parents. That's right she was born during a sailing trip. The decker family was Dutch which means they were from the Netherlands. Laura spent the first five years of her life at sea and continued sailing with her father afterward. She received her first boat on her sixth birthday. And named it the Guppy. At this time she also learned how to sail the boat on her own. She would often sale by herself with her father following nearby while windsurfing when Laura was eight she received a book for her birthday called the maiden voyage written by Tanya. Happy who we learned about earlier in the story her adventures Got Laura. Thinking about making the same long trip around the earth. During the following years Laura continued to practice. She went on smaller ships by herself and continue to improve her skills see until she felt ready to circumnavigate the globe. This means to go entirely around the earth in two thousand and ten Laura finally set off. She faced many issues with the law which said she shouldn't be able to do it by herself. Many people in her country believed it wasn't safe and she shouldn't do it alone but finally she was given permission to go. She left Gibraltar in August. Two thousand ten then made a few stops until she arrived in the Canary Islands. There she waited for a hurricane to pass then she continued to cross the Atlantic Saint Martins and other islands in the Caribbean during her trip unlike Tanya. She had a gps so her parents and others were able to follow exactly where she was during her voyage. She was also much better prepared than Tanya to make the trip from the Caribbean. She then passed through the Panama Canal then the Galapagos Islands and Tonga Fiji the non to Australia next she passed the Cape of Good Hope in Africa then finally completed trip at Saint Martin. She had traveled sixty four hundred miles in one hundred twenty three days at the age of sixteen during the voyage. Laura wrote about her experiences and the news followed. What she was doing. A movie has been made about her experience called maiden trip and she wrote a book called one girl one dream. It's pretty amazing. What people can accomplish

Yeah you can hike for their quite flat so I would. I wouldn't go there specifically for. We bought some fireworks going in the background. Just changing the subject briefly today. There's that's the big parade I believe in. Which is the parade of the three kings? Tomorrow is Los Reyes and someone told me. Oh if you're looking go out to the airport today be careful because it might be a bit chaotic in last time out in the city centre after about three or four o'clock because they start closing the streets ready for the parade three kings. Come through checking sweets. Yes how on big floats checking sweets out to the children to announce their arrival tomorrow. They'll be delivering the presents. Let's to the children kind of topic of it and I just think maybe there's connected with our at an aerobic good thing two years. They filmed in some marvel film in the south of of intuitive and they needed an and I wasn't some wasn't a very good film. It's a story of Moses. What are these? Toiletries filmed in south of the twin tutor and they needed a lot of camels.

I only them when I'm showing people round yesterday. That's the canarian thing. They do a good solid here. They don't mix it up so you would get US mixed up but it's not it's just every ingredient and you pick your own bit indifferent. Price slice of pineapple in a traditionally those who is a good thing to get up in the mountains cutler rabbit goatee goat stews and things. It's on the coast infinite number of different things to do squid deep fried a baby ones or girl. The whole ones assistant every restaurant. There's about six different squid dishes other than that. Cuisines fairly simple straightforward well known for the production of it so in bananas and and I people go crazy for on the on the peninsula. People get crazy for Canarian bananas quite expensive Back on the peninsula bananas Cultivated rated dry air. And I'm GonNa have match another kind of subtropical says well. Yeah Bananas Pineapples Pupils Mangoes in the South. The bananas his all noise to Chit tip back and give you don't bomb in the supermarket.

Banana Fridge loses some of its yet that you gotta have him fresh conventions curious traditions. That happened on the island. Carnival is a quick tale. Here I could just tell us a bit about the carnival. Carnival goes from the beginning February until the end of April. Somewhere on the island. This carnival last pumice is huge. Has the really famous drag show but actually it lasts three weeks and his something. Almost every night Santa Catalina has will stands and this is a big parade in little parade as traditional grade. Reverend dresses white light to remember when the first Canarian emigrants to Venezuela came back rich looking for bride. That didn't suits and stuff and then carnival goes the way round. There's one in Maspalomas mcgann every town as carnival and then during the summer months. Every village has a big fiesta. They call here a Rometty. Yeah rather than a fiesta in Loma Gulia they throw treat each other in La La. They have a mud wrestling communist mud. Wrestle in day they'll run into the Likud and try and catch fish catches the most vicious king or queen for the town of something old ask. Yeah it gives you a really kind of snapshot into Deep Spain. Deep the local coach I was reading about the Carnival is one of the biggest Megawati. Would they be in terms of numbers of people who attend bigger than Rio. I Dunno I read something along those lines. Maybe he's probably despicable that is. Certainly one of the biggest carnival allowed re re always like ten RESP- real at the the street. PROCESSIONISTS is high quality dancing. They really practicing looks looks incredible but ever behind barriers and it's quite organized here the main parade days of Carnival just bedlam this hundreds of thousands of people the following these floats playing the same songs ever popular P- dont song his own and this kid's raving behind them huge street party made numerous nice and then just after the loss float is a huge cleanup glitz through behind it. Thomas finished that just catching up the next morning going going we've driven past quite a few times Since we've been here the last days and I noticed a huge big by mortar with appear to be like Metal kind of mining towers onto the boat. All it's up at night hundreds of lights rights and there are. I don't know how many eight ten of them more up in Harbour Morris quite a few on I was curious to what they were and I looked a little quick google search and I found out that there Exploratory ships to go out for petroleum or something like that. What you said earlier interesting about the location? Why they're located here? Yeah this was If you turn the globe and Canarias talk and then you measure the distances. Midway between North we right and center the New Zealand. The Brazilian soap oilfields and the West African oilfields. So this is logical place for everyone to bring man rix to maintain previous Tabernacle. Go to new way and it took extra couple of weeks to drag him up there so now they maintain those rigs here which brings a lot of money. And it's everything's can the era. Only tourism and bananas and tourism is huge but on his aw picturesque economically the anymore. They don't really thing they'll rix bring a lot of money in the court. Containable is a huge part of the island as well and again. There's mixed come here. They fixed up subsea companies. The bottom bit swims over the top and then they go back to sometimes. They're just sitting off waiting for a commissioner more up and then suddenly someone will phone go. We need one in this.

Something eighty eighty beaches and counting around the islands. Tourist Board says eighty the over. Those twenty I five. You probably wouldn't ever want to spend the day on the there is some sand. But we've got about fifty down the website on a sync. We've covered on the the ones that you wanted. Yeah so bad for long because Gran Canaria something like six hundred the square miles sixty kilometers in any direction because especially around sixty kilometers across north south and sixty kilometers going West tweets to be amazed if no one's heard of the grand canary or the Canary Islands. But just to kind of put it on the map for about nine hundred miles south of the European inclined continent while the peninsula of Spain. And we're about ninety eight miles off the west coast of North Africa. What about the towns and villages anywhere really stands out where is nice to spend a relaxing day wandering around some of that is maybe a bit more local less touristy touristy anytime that's moving two minutes away from the resorts just reverts to being almost completely local This summer culminated Hannah which which is up in the highlands behind the main resorts.

I see why the government hasn't taken Chamba steps in this man, unless they're afraid that. The. People just won't react as a now, they'll they'll say, hey, they'll just get rid of everything. And the economy goes into dumps. And then they haven't got the money. They'll what they want. So it's obvious that. The things that allegedly going on what area fifty one room lake actually true some of it. But not all of it. The extraterrestrial parts is not really what's currently going on their back. They've back engineered some crashed craft did indeed happened like the Roswell thing, but there's no extraterrestrials working in any of these places carrying their little lunch trays around under area, fifty one or anything. This is part of the disinformation too preoccupied people was that which is unreal. As you said what a shocker the real stuff is challenging enough that sure is let's go to Walton Pennsylvania now. Hey, Walter, go ahead. Hi, Georgina goes to say, it's always great to be only two George. Thank you, sir. And Georgia missed a horn, great conversation lists. I just want to point out that we have we have to be careful when differentiating between science fiction and science and stuff. Man has always had a fertile imagination. Going back to ancient times. It can be argued that stuff. The book of revelation is actually an early form of science fiction. And then of course, you have people like no stood dominance in the modern near the nineteenth century. We had people like Jules Verne and h g wells. And then, of course, in Georgia as a as a radio man, you know, about Orson Welles in this story. Nineteen thirty perpetrated the hoax war on the world's scared. The death out of everybody you heard it. Exactly. Right. Needless to say we had the Roswell incident supposedly at nineteen forty seven. And. Fifty one we had the great science fiction movie. Starring with Hollywood, we had the daily yours still. And I just want to point out that stuff. You know, we as men variable has violated h we have fertile imagination. So we have to be you know, unguarded. Differentiating between science fiction, and science fact, of course, thank you. And of course, Billy has been accused sometimes that they aren't real as a hoax. He doesn't seem to fight back. He doesn't have to I guess it doesn't have to. And and as I sit in the very beginning of the show, George Joe TISCO article, which is on my blog, basically has ended the skeptical challenge because he's a military man who was a skeptic. He approached this as you should, you know, scientists well, one of the guys that they spoke to scientists said, well, you know, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. I said, actually that's not true. First of all, we have extrordinary evidence been vetted, but what was extraordinarily about the earth's going around the sun you go back five hundred years. That's extrordinary all that is necessary with any claims any is to apply the scientific methodology, and then you will determine whether the claims are accurate truthful factual or they're not forget your prejudices. They don't like to hear that. Because when they say that they have. Prejudice. Anybody? That's servewell extraordinary claims. Your extraordinary evidence..

"I would SIS down the English channel salience the Canary Islands. Let's see the flags, fluttering all the little the diesel bits and pieces so that that was that was an important part you it's. Yeah, that's really powerful. One thing I found so interesting in your story is that you guys had a lot of naysayers, but the way you respond to them was not what I expected. How'd you guys handle naysayers say it's interesting, right? So someone gives you criticism rights and they come at you like this. The first reaction is to push back and you know, Mike experience when you do that, you just end up with an argument and nobody wins, and that's not particularly helpful. So it was helpful by the way in the process of Manta describe that. It wasn't just me. It was. Me and my wife together the whole thing until the Matt we rather than me. So when people told us all the reasons that we couldn't do it, that's sometimes there's reasons come across so powerfully. They sound like facts, but they just opinions and it's really important to remember that distinction that they are in opinions. But whenever someone told us, things like that, we didn't dismiss out of hand, we'd write it down and then we put in that piece of paper to one side, and you know that listening got bigger and bigger every time, of course. But because we'd spent that first six months talking about the vision of where we were going to go. And also the purpose of why we were doing it's which was to create magical life, changing experiences for us and our children spend a of time talking about that. That purpose actually. This we got so clear on that that became this unstoppable momentum that when we then came back to all those reasons, why not s- then we could start to work our way through those methodically. And it's interesting because we have a saying family that if it was down to me, nothing would ever get finished. It was down to my wife, nothing would ever get started. It's so we kind of work quite well together as a team and the weed literally take each of those different areas and say, for example, one of the areas with was medical and we think, okay, well, how we going to deal with this, if something happens on the boat, which you mentioned for it did and we had to figure out a way to get comfortable with us. So we both trained to become ships doctors to the most intense medical training. You can do outside of becoming a nurse or a doctor, and then we always made sure we knew whether other doctors and other medical resources that we again drew on. So rather than being overwhelmed by this whole list of reasons. We can't do it. Then we just literally worked through them one by one or other. My wife took control of during mass and figured after Latif elsewhere it. So it's real team thing. Talk to me about your concept of relentless action. That was something that I found really powerful because they're the criticisms like you were saying, we're coming. You like to choose to believe that they were coming from a place of care, and which I think is really smart. And so, hey, they're just worried they want to voice all the things they think maybe we aren't thinking about. But they had a pretty damn good list of reasons why should like you even listed them yourself, but one that I've never heard you talk about but was the one that jumped out at me on your board was pirates and I thought, oh God, like there's a lot of legitimate stuff to be freaked out about and like, how do you go in and put your plan of attack together to deal with those things. And yeah, to use relentless action to find solution solve this. Yeah. I mean, the relentless with me comes from the fact.
