Welcome to this weeks edition of Fuertenews, I hope that you have had a lovely week.

Well Fuerteventura is in the headlines again with the visit of Brad Pit. (see news item) I was returning from the airport Wednesday following a fleet of white land rovers with big burly men inside. He had flown from Las Palmas in his private jet. I have to say I declined the offer to join them filming and went to a private beach party on the dunes instead. Even Fuertenews has its priorities.

See our “what’s on section” for Canary day but don’t forget to visit Campanario Market on Monday for a special Canarias day event

Enjoy this weeks edition, all the best
