... I showed the budding tri-athlete a thing or two about hill walking I can tell you. Although we were a trifle warm when we reached the top the views were amazing. On the walk down we passed immaculate olive groves and then further on down plums, lemons, oranges, figs , pears and apples all within about an acre of each other- lovely..
Back in the village square for breakfast at 1015.
Hot and sweaty but with buns of steel... Job ...
... were fire helicopters and planes flying in relay trying to dowse the flames in support of the two hundred or so bomberos (firefighters) on the ground. This went on for about 9 hours .
