It wasn't until later that day, when discussing our trip with others, that we realised we started the walk from the wrong end, against the slope and into the morning sun. That didn't really detract from our experience, but it did explain why most of the people and groups we met on the track were headed the other way. What did take the shine off ...
... Capri is made up of huge mountains and all around was practically cliff faces, where you would see small villas occasionally perched on top owned by Versaci and other such disgustingly rich individuals. We also watched jealously as we pulled into the green grotto, and saw small groups of people in private boats or tours swimming in the clear (greenish) waters of the green grotto.
Unfortunately our tour didn't allow for any swimming in the grotto, and ...
