Fuerteventura : Part I

No. 19 (Vertical) : Tuineje, Feurteventura, Canary Islands, Spain

I'm not 100% sure what I was expecting when the subject of a vacation in the Canary Islands came up. I think I had something akin to Greece and the Mediterranean or something similar in mind. Fuerteventura was none of that. That's not to say this vacation was a disappointment. Rather, it was a pleasant surprise.

We stayed in the town of Tuineje with Maya's uncle, Jan-Peter, and his wife, Christa. The topography of Fuerteventura is similar to the U.S. desert southwest, but with a coast. The next few days will feature photos from this unique island off the west coast of Africa.

Today's photos, taken a week ago, feature shots from around the town of Tuineje.
