Are you a basket case?

Even if you are not, you could soon be converted at the 22nd annual Pinolere arts and crafts fair in the La Orotava valley on the weekend of August 31 and September 1st and 2nd. Basket weaving might sound a bit Womens Institute but this is one of the great traditions of the Canary Islands and is only a small part of the huge fair.

If you want to see and sample food, drink, crafts and traditions and get a real feel of what the Canary Islands is all about, this is for you.

To read my full preview, with photos from last year, look at the website of The Tenerife Sun, or pick up a free copy of the islands top paper from one of the 300 outlets.
