Every day in every way ...

Things are getting better and better ...

Unless you are a donkey, this is a Santorini version


He trudges his way daily up and down from sea level, to the town above. Carrying people who are too unfit or rich from the excess food they consume on cruise ships, to the town above the caldera.

The 'Skiathian' version climbs the steps on foot, as a beast of burden. He emerges breathless in the heat, trying to locate a room in the wilderness. He knocks, the door opens and is met by an Italian lady covered in bling, immaculately dressed, and drenched in perfume.

Then looking over her reading glasses, at the Englishman, thinks her nightly prayers have finally been answered. It was my toughest assignment yet ...


Somehow I made it back unscathed, and without breaking a leg, on the 300 or so steps back to sea level. I do love the Italians, they are such a crazy funny nation of people ...

Later update:

More Italians and another SWIF (Single White Italian Female) this one from Rome, with tall son in tow. Very funny comparing city life, London to Rome. Clear skies and an orange glow,as the sun sets over the Pelion.

Had a text from my old boss (she would handbag me for that) good to hear from you JP.
