Within minutes of arriving on the French Island of Corsica, we noticed a big difference from Italy. The roads are organised, sign posted and in comparison to Sicily the cars are massive...and newer. There is hardly any rubbish by the side of the roads (& there are even recycling bins). First hand proof that there are some benefits to paying taxes.... and less organised crime over the centuries probably helps as well! It's now the last week of ...
Today we headed off well prepared for any sort of weather.
Again climbing mountains. Weather was hot! Climb along a river valley and up the mountain. Mostly out in the open and very hot. Had to take clothes of rather than put them on.
Jen not feeling the best so she went back to her accommodation and we said we would walk for about 4 hours.
Climbed through the mountain valley, spectacular views.
... rocks, bushes etc to transverse.
Of course we were prepared NOT! It had been hot and sunny when we left.
It was cool, but ok until we got to the lac, 1770 metres above sea level and the breeze was not hot.
After checking out the shepherds hut, the temperature of the water and the dark clouds we decided to descend.
I was freezing in my polo shirt and shorts.
Hard yakka going down ...
... honey etc. The only real industry is tourism, there is no heavy industry at all. Lots of those Moke cars around and quad type bikes, except bigger. Otherwise same sort of cars as we have at home,a lot of camper vans. Petrol is 1.61 € per litre, seems much the same as on the mainland which is surprising. The language almost seems more Italian than French but I guess there has been checkered history with I think something like 5 centuries of belonging ...
... and say a prayer for her. We know, wherever she is, Karena is leading others in joyous song.
Back on the Azamara, we join 6 of our new friends for an elegant dinner. C.C. Carter, a seasoned spoken word performer from Chicago. She brought down the house with her celebration of "curvalicious" women. Dana crashes and Mary ends the night with dancing.
Tomorrow - back to Italy!
