Spring's Sprung

Three week in, 50 routes ticked, a couple of showery days - but as ever Kalymnos has been superb. We met up with long time mate Andy Nicholson (he was a lodger of mine a thousand years ago) and he dragged me up a few climbs I hadn't done before which was great.
As forecast the place has become pretty busy but hopefully by the weekend a lot of the 'tourists' (as we like to call them) will have had their Easter break and will be headed back north.
The Easter Celebrations in Pothia were spectacular and very noisy - we had to move away from the main 'dynamite throwing' area with ears ringing - crazy!
It has been very hot - 26C one day - but it is supposed to cool down over the next few days which would be great - having said that a bit of heat and humidity is probably good practice for Singapore and Darwin!
