Jake and I should be very fit. The last five weeks have involved a lot of steps. The top photo is half way up our bread run in Hydra. The bakery is in the corner of the harbour. We tackled these steps between 6:45 and 7:30am each day for one month; I was the more enthusiastic participant - although my calves and knees complained at first. Every morning Jake enthusiastically bounded out of our studio but tried every trick in the book to avoid walking back up.
These are a few of our afternoon steps; a more gentle slope down to Kamini bay, if only there was a Bakery here. There were evening steps too, but Jake stayed at home - he'd had enough climbing by then.
So we were in good condition to embark on an archaeological marathon the day after we got back to Turkey. This is Jake climbing the steps to the Temple of Apollo at Didyma - I was all for it but I'm sure he is thinking, "You have got to be joking".
