We outchea. Climbing mountains in Canary Islands.
Did some research. These mountains have caves that housed the Canary original people, Guanches, who are descendants of North African Berbers. The island is only 7% African now according to DNA testing on the island. Surprise surprise Spaniards conquer and kill yet again.
When I got here I felt like this place felt very much like Puerto Rico or DR in terms of the land. But the people are very distinctly Spaniards unlike DR and PR which has a lot of racial mixing.
Nonetheless I want to pay respect to the people who's land I am currently enjoying. Guanch people.
