Fact of the Day: Spanish Teide

The tallest mountain in Spain known as Teide isn't really on the mainland but rather on the Canary Islands. The mountain was considered sacred to the aboriginal people that lived there. They believed that a evil-god named Guayota imprisoned Magec (god of sun and light) and plunged the world into darkness. That was until the Supreme God Achaman defeated Guayota and rescued Magec.

  5. The Spanish Canary Islands are most interesting and unfortunately
    in recent times has the distinction of having the worst major
    air disaster (well on the tarmac) in history. KLM and Pan Am
    747's smashing into each other. Seems to be an accident that
    is impossible to believe could have happened.
