    Thanks, Benoît -- one's influences are hard to hide sometimes ;-)

    Everything is thought for the foreign tourist. It's sad that cannot promote the interior tourism.

    Llorenç, I didn't really stay long enough or research enough to find out about the balance between the genuinely local and that which is geared towards foreign tourists -- but some of what I saw seemed to fit into an international brand of recreational props and to be tailored towards us foreigners on "our" terms. Lanzarote prides itself on keeping to low-rise and locally inspired architectural styles in the accomodation developments for the tourist industry, though, which seems positive for a start, and more local and Spanish foods were of course also available...

    I know the reality of Lanzarote as of Tenerife and other islands. Of course Lanzarote is not of the most affected, but it is. And of course Lanzarote does not have another possibility than to work this way since his biggest economy comes from the exterior product. But if they live of the foreign tourists it is because his politics has never taken care very much of the interior tourists. Not long ago I designed a wines catalog for a Lanzarote winery. They were saying that they sell more in Germany or UK than in Spain. It is a promotion question and of investing money.

    The taxi driver taking us to the airport said that there had been a dramatic drop in tourism lately, due to the recession, with job losses in the contruction industry and tourism as a result, and with a very marked slowing down of the business he is able to make in his own job. Tourists are therefore a blessing in the sense that they keep the economy going, since, as you point out, local policies have put a lot of emphasis on this avenue of income. Whether it is desirable that this continues, and whether it is more desirable to have Spanish mainland tourists than foreign ones, is not for me to say. There seemed to be a majority of Spanish speakers on the plane I arrived on (from Madrid), but in Puerto del Carmen, which is a purpose-built tourist resort, foreigners like myself seemed to constitute the vast majority of visitors. (Designing a wines catalogue for a Lanzarote winery sounds like an interesting enough task, by the way...)

    With the dollar in the "tank" so to speak, we will be staying home (again) this year to see the dolphins. It takes $15 to buy a plowman's platter in London. I will have to pay for my trip to Rio next year in Euros or gold. Sigh!

    Great comments here :-) ... This image makes me wonder how Dolphins might modify Humans for their own Tourist trade.

    seems to me the dolphin is not that picky -- whether it's about drinks or tourists : )
