"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." ~ Albert Einstein

When my brother performed in the Grand Canary Islands, he spent some time walking around and taking in the magnificent mix of architectural styles. This isn't a particularly restful place, as it is a prominent vacation area and Stephen reports that the noise and the lights at all hours of the night make New York City look like a sleepy little rural town. But the ornate detail on the buildings is amazing. I don't know what type of establishment this was... a store perhaps... the name suggests either a nightclub or some sort of restaurant. One thing is for certain, no one could miss this place with the bright facade and the deep contrasting black trim.

What a beautiful photo for Ruby Tuesday.  The Canary Islands appear to be very interesting.  Stephen surely has an interesting life.  It's great he gets to see so many parts of the world while he's working.

GREAT Building...! I've never been to The Canary Islands...It sounds like the "night-life" is what it is all about!

"Rebajas" means sales, so something there is a shop, having a sale.
