A series of steps and wooden walkways had been contructured up the more than modest incline which needed to be conquered in order to reach the heights of the castle. The very nimble students and our august guide had no hesitation with this ascent. I rose but at a more leisurely but not often breathless pace. Conveniently benches had been constructed on most of the many landings on the way up into the blue. I fortuitously met several friends on my path.
