you caught the monk making a turn, and looking up … no hesitation whatsoever in his ascent! The furl of his red skirt, the tilt of his foot, the lifting of his head, it’s all there.

I, on the other hand, was very aware of the altitude. My own movements were far less assured and fleet-footed!

I am very glad that I don’t have to climb those steps, I’d be worn out.

The steps are steep, and an altitude of well over 10,000 ft above sea-level means we coastal dwellers get very puffed as soon as any climbing starts! But fortunately, I had a friend’s shoulder to lean on.
