The Auditorio de Tenerife (and an outfit)
You know how people are always saying they like it when bloggers wear the same things over and over again, because it’s so much more “relatable” or something?
I’m REALLY hoping people actually mean it when they say that, because oh hey, look, it’s that white blazer again! Worn with the same pair of jeans! And also the same t-shirt, hat and bag as my post from a couple of weeks ago! (Er, you’re going to be seeing that hat a LOT, by the way. Like, pretty much every single post from here on out – it’s not that I think it looks amazing or anything, it’s just that it was the only hat I had with me, and if I hadn’t worn it all the time, I’d have had a REALLY sunburnt scalp by now…) Guys, I am WINNING at the whole “wearing the same things over and over again” thing, I really am. I mean, I THINK when people say that, they probably mean they want to see the same things worn again, but in a different way… they don’t actually SAY that, though, so I’m calling this one a win, even although it totally isn’t.
Anyway, my outfit may not be the most interesting, but the location of these photos WAS pretty interesting, so I’m showing you them anyway. This is the Auditorio de Tenerife, which is located in the island’s capital city, Santa Cruz, and is home to the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra. Pretty cool, huh?
Here’s the back view:
“It looks like a butt,” said Terry. And sure enough, once you see it, you can’t UN-see it. Sorry to lower the tone…
For those of you whose mental age is higher than ours obviously is, this building – and the area around it – is well worth a visit, if you’re ever in the area: it’s just stunning to look at, and although we weren’t allowed inside, we spent quite a bit of time just wandering around and enjoying the view. The building is right on the coast, next to the Parque Maritimo lido – which looked particulalry inviting to me, given that I’d managed to totally mess up with that whole “dressing myself” business again. GOD.
Santa Cruz, you see, is located in the north of the island: every other time we’ve been there, it’s been pretty overcast, and I’d been quite chilly the previous week, when we visited nearby Puerto de La Cruz, so this time I thought I’d be clever, and wear jeans and a blazer, rather than the sundress I’d normally have gone for. What YOU know and I obviously didn’t, however, is that “being clever” in this case would’ve meant checking the weather forecast, because yup, it was absolutely boiling. I kept my blazer on for these photos – er, because otherwise this outfit would’ve been even MORE boring – but, in a strange reversal of my usual photo-taking process, I had to take it off as soon as we were done. One day I swear to God I’ll learn how to dress for the weather: one day…
