In a week when the mountains and valleys were still a remarkably lush green, we took a meandering late afternoon drive into Arrecife to find flashes of colour daubed and mixed on the landscape’s pallet. How such muted colours on so…

The tarmac cuts a smooth path through the inhospitable lava flow,…
