It’s often the little differences that delight when living in a different culture. I see these all the time and have meant to take a photo of one for years. Palm fronds are standard issue for the roadsweepers of Tenerife. I finally remembered to take a photo at the Corazones de Tejina the other week. There’s something comfortably old fashioned about seeing this little set up of a couple of bins, a brush and a palm leaf and they are actually incredibly effective for sweeping up rubbish – no doubt the reason why they are still used. Tenerife’s authorities should promote them as an Eco-friendly way of keeping the island’s streets clean.
