USA Basketball Team in Gran Canaria

0 comments
It's not very often that I write about sport here on Gran Canaria blog, but, we do have some important games coming up with Spain 2014 BasketBall World Cup.

There is a lot of buzz about the USA men's basketball team presence on the island for a pre World Cup friendly. It's not all work and no play, the team enjoyed some time on Playa del Inglés beach.

They have been using the Pabellón de El Tablero for their daily training, which is where I spotted them this afternoon after practice.

NBA star James Harden who plays for the Houston Rockets, took some time after practice to meet fans and sign autographs.



Gran Canaria has group D for the World Cup and games start on Saturday 30th August in the new Gran Canaria Arena in Las Palmas. Check out the schedule here:

Merca Lifeng Arguineguin

0 comments
The fishing village of Arguineguin has a new shop, Merca Lifeng. Although it has yet to open, you can already tell it's going to be a huge shop and all from 49 cents!

Merca Lifeng is just across the road from Playa de las Marañuelas and underneath Bankia and BBVA banks.

I had a quick peek as the owners were loading orders into the shop and it looks like they will sell a bit of everything, as many of the discount shops in Gran Canaria do. Great timing for back to school supplies!

The unit looks a bit awkward to get to, but there is a ramp for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

More photos to follow when it opens.
