Welcome to this weeks edition of Fuertenews.

Big celebrations on Sunday 1st May, it is a public holiday - "day of the worker" Tourist towns will hold local celebrations of dancing and traditional food markets.
May 2nd is also a public holiday here. Banks and post offices will be closed.
Sadly the "route de Tapas" in La Oliva has been cancelled this year due to lack of participating restaurants.
It seems the restaurants are feeling that it takes folk away from their normal full menu choices.
Enjoy the week ahead.

    The Sanus Fuerteventura Restaurant was created to ensure proper preparation of the dishes to avoid any gluten poisoning. The attention is also directed to diets such as: Vegans, vegetarians and diabetics who require equally rigorous attention. The ingestion of gluten, even in small doses, can cause damage. However, Sanus has such a varied menu selection that even if you have no food intolerances the menu offers a superb change to the normal style of restaurant.
