Fajas are the small villages on the rocky outcrops of lava found around the island. People live in some fairly inaccessible places with access via quad bike. Some areas can be reached in a small hire car whereas others involve a 5 to 10km hike. With regard to buses on the island there is one that goes south at 0725 in the morning and it returns at about 1700 that evening. Really, one a day? Yep that’s it on a week day. It’s main purpose is to take ladies to the fish factory and back.
We met Adriana and Warner from Germany hiking up the hill in the rain. We offered them a lift, traveled round the island together, and then had dinner whilst watching the Holland/Argentina game. They have sailed between Gran Canaria and the Azores and wonder about crossing to the Caribbean.
