ABANDONED RESORT. SAN AUGUSTIN. GRAN CANARIA. SPAIN

WHILE SITTING ON THE BALCONY AT AIDAS SCOPING THE VIEW I NOTICED THAT THE RESORT IN FRONT OF HER PLACE WAS ABANDONED SO CHAY AND I WENT DOWN TO SCOPE IT OUT. WHILE I WAS IN ONE OF THE FIRST ROOMS TAKING PHOTOS MARY RAN BACK AND LOOKED LIKE SHE HAD SEEN A GHOST! SHE CASUALLY WENT TO WALK INTO A ROOM TO SCOPE IT AND HEARD A T.V ON. WE SNUCK PASS AND REALIZED SOMEONE HAD DISCOVERED THIS FREE RENT PARADISE LONG BEFORE US. WE SEARCHED AROUND MORE AND FOUND SOME OLD POSTCARDS, PHOTOS FROM THE SQUATTERS, CREDIT CARDS AND THEN THE RUBBISH ROOM. WHILE WE WERE UP IN THE RUBBISH ROOM 2 ANGRY LITTLE DOGS BELLOW STARTED GOING CRAZY AND THEIR OWNER (WHO WAS WATCHING T.V EARLIER) WAS LOOKING AROUND FOR US. WE TRIED TO STAY LOW AND KEEP OUT OF SIGHT. I THEN OPENED UP A DOOR TO CHECK OUT ONE OF THE ROOMS AND BAM, I WAS FACE TO FACE WITH AN AFRICAN SQUATTER WHO WAS AROUND THE SAME AGE AS ME. HE WAS AS SHOCKED AS I WAS, I APOLOGIZED FOR BEING IN HIS HOME AND HE GAVE ME A WEIRD LOOK AND CLOSED THE DOOR. I CONTINUED TO TAKE A COUPLE MORE SHOTS AND THEN HE STARTED TO PLAY SOME KIND OF EERY SOUNDING FLUTE INSTRUMENT. THE WHOLE TIME WE HAD THE CREEPS THAT SOMEONE WAS FOLLOWING US. WHEN WE LEFT THE TRASH ROOM OUR UMBRELLA THAT WE HAD LEFT OUTSIDE THE DOOR HAD BEEN STOLEN . . .
