Gran Canaria: Part II

How amazing is this sand sculpture of the last supper!? Being a Theology student I was particularly amused.

After a few days of needed rest, we decided it was time to go out and explore what Maspalomas has to offer, so of course, with me being a child at heart, we headed to the zoo. However this wasn't just any zoo, this was Palmitos Park which had spectacular dolphin and bird shows, an aquarium and enclosures where you could be in direct contact with birds of all sorts. My personal favourite is this narky chap with the amazing hair-do. 

Next up we couldn't resist going to the beaches, visiting the famous Maspalomas sand dunes and of course, soaking up the sun. Maspalomas had an amazing selection of shops, from Lacoste, Hugo Boss all the way to Mint Clothing, which sold the most beautiful Mulberry bags!

The restaurants in Maspalomas were also equally gorgeous and I couldn't resist trying a selection of their cocktails. The verdict in the end was the Cosmopolitan cocktail was the winner, with the Mojito not too far behind. Whilst I tried out the cocktails, Ben indulged in a mighty-fine ice cream, called the Banana Split. The cocktail bar that we revisited over and over throughout the holiday not only served delicious concoctions, but they also had an amazing blues/jazz singer and then a DJ later on ... the perfect way to end an adventure-filled day.
