A holiday climb
Here’s another photo from Monday’s hike. There are always a few mounted policemen on the mountain on the weekends and holidays. They keep a lookout for those pesky thieves who like to take hikers’ cameras and cellphones. All of the police are very friendly and seem to enjoy what they’re doing.
Lately, I have been going through my stuff, trying to decide what to leave behind and what to take when I go back to the states next month. Today, I filled a large bag with towels, sheets and some clothes. I’ll be giving them to a friend who volunteers with a foundation that helps needy people.
