Up hill

These are just few samples of the local Tyrrhenian architecture that I was able to snap early in the morning, along on our daily climb to reach the beach of Maronti. It might sound strange, on the island you always have to climb before going down and enter the sea. It's a healthy, training process that slowly strengthen your mind and body.
Upon leaving and getting back to the city, you end up missing the heat, the fresh sweat that constantly stains your shirt and drips from your forehead, the smell of green volcanic sponge rock upon which everything stands and that makes up the surface of every wall.

Taxi Boats

Lido dei Maronti, Ischia. The southern side of the island observed from the hill on a quiet morning. Two taxi boats cross their trails on the plain water surface.
