A Week and a World Away

Babis Bar sunsets take some beating
An easy journey via a night in the Stansted Radisson and we were back on Kalymnos in double-quick time.
Unfortunate Babis Bar was full so we were allocated a small, hot, dark 'cubicle' in the cellar - suffice to say we didn't sleep too well.
Next day we were upstairs back in the 'proper' world of blue skies and shimmering seas. Six routes just to 'get going' was a proper welcome.
The place is busy but we knew that would be the case with the last two weeks in October being the peak of the Peak Season.
it is interesting that even with all the new routes/crags that have become available the place is still packed.

It will only be a week before the hoards start leaving and then we can get out to play.
I heard today that my Cot d'Azure guidebook has just about sold out so we are looking at a rapid turnaround to get a new volume out before the seasons starts next spring.
Interestingly it has sold quite well averaging over two books a day, every day for six years - and all that from a book that nearly didn't make it to publicationn
