La Turbie - Climbing the Stairs

Ever wondered why the old people live so long in France? Maybe it's the good food and red wine. I think it's all the walking up steep stairs to their homes. Imagine living here and knowing that everything you need has to be lugged up and further up.

It would keep your heart well exercised, wouldn't it?

You are correct. Europeans are more fit than Americans because they walk a lot more. Many people I know could go all week walking only from the house to the garage, then from the garage at the office up the elevator, and back again at night. The younger generation gets their news on the computer and does not even walk down the driveway to fetch the morning newspaper.

I am enjoying Bob's photos of his visit with you.
