From an uncharted tiki bar somewhere in Iberia...

Spanish Mai Tais on me!

I love this picture. I love that place. It's just a fried chicken joint for northern European tourists in the mediterranean coast of Spain, but with a name like that, Paradise comes to my mind.

I have never been there and I have no pictures or physical evidence of this place but I found it "surfing" the web. Maybe I will check it out using google maps street level function... Naufrago, Bastardo Saffrin, any euro out there, go check it out please! Take pictures!

Here's a review of Kon-Tiki from TripAdvisor, doesn't sound too promising. No pictures or mention of tiki...

"Pictures show food like many other restaurants do (Chips, salad, meat, pizza, paella etc.) Weighters try to get you inside. I was very hungry so I ate almost half of what I got. Mixed grill (sauceges, pinchito's, ..) I tasted all, only the chips were OK (OK I'm Dutch but this food was very bad). The meat seemed to be very old. My daughter's pizza was like cardboard. Service is very slow even tough many people walk round and about.
That same night my wife and I became ill. We survived."

Gracias Trader Magnus! It sounds great! Now we need someone to go there and give us a first hand impression. Graphics are vital too! I would forgive their cooking skills for a cool logo or something like that. I never visit a (kon) tiki joint for the food, anyway. I would eat glass soup if the decor is cool!

Expedicion Ant-Tiki o La familia Milenios descubre America

Made in Spain

Bertil Almqvist (29 August 1902 Solna — 16 May 1972 Stockholm), nicknamed Bertila, was a Swedish author and illustrator famous for his World War II-era En svensk tiger propaganda poster (which was one of the most recognized symbols in Sweden around this time period) as well as his children's book series, later comic, Barna Hedenhös (The Stone Age Kids Discover America, The Stones Explore Britain). Almqvist studied literature in Stockholm and Uppsala from 1924 until 1925.

El Corte Inglés is Spain’s largest department store chain.
This Spanish institution is using Tikis in its summer sale advertising campaign.
As a result every major city is covered with gigantic Tiki images.







It´s a strange feeling…

Hey Sr. Castaway! I bet the publicists where inspired by your blog!
I definitely don't like the mainstream looting my favorite sub-culture. Some things are better left in the dark and only for the initiated. Oh well... If they would contribute something it would be fair game but 99.99% of the times they only dilute coolness to a lame comatose state and make a healthy profit by doing so. Happened with Graffiti, happened with skateboards, happened with punk rock...
On the other hand, old tiki temples need new pilgrim's money.

Here's a picture of a true tiki pioneer artist.

Mr. Robert Williams in Barcelona, Spain.
