12 Uvas in 2011

Judging from the first sunset of 2011, I think we have a fabulous year ahead. Happy New Year y Feliz Año from the beautiful coast of Tenerife!  

Another reason I believe 2011 will be a lucky year is that we ate our doce uvas, or twelve grapes, which according to Spanish legend, assures good luck and prosperity each month of the year.

If you're inclined, you can purchase a can of peeled grapes to make the twelve go down smoother, eating them in quick succession, one after the other in each of the last 12 seconds of the year....

 But as each bell tolled on the television, I preferred to shove mine down whole, peels and all.

Which made for an interesting Noche Vieja or New Year's Eve, but more on that and our adventures in Tenerife later...
