So it begins

After so much rain and gloominess, we finally got to enjoy a day in the sun. Well, this one ended in rain too, but at least we made it to the top of the cliff first. This cliff being the so-called "hawks' cliff", a rock formation I spent my entire childhood under, behind or near, but I had never actually climbed.

Until this day, when I added another dizzyingly high peak (about 800m) to my portfolio:
I don't think I'll ever get tired of this view:

After conquering this difficult peak, which took a total of about an hour, we collapsed by the side of the river, fried, ate, lay in the sun and chatted for the rest of the day. Just like the good old times.

In other news today...the garden smells like honeysuckle, I have to sleep with the windows open at night, I've finished torturing my students with exams, the cherry tree across the road is teasing me with its load of deep red yumminess... Yup, I think it's summer...
