The trip to the Marina


With Sant’Andrea sitting way up on a hill (many of the small towns along the Ionian Sea were built far from the shore as a defense mechanism), it’s quite a ride to get to and from the rest of the world. Nanny and Poppy say there are 60 curves from top to bottom. I didn’t count, but they should know, having walked this path countless times as children.

There’s a more direct path to the Marina by foot through a thin dirt lane, but it has its challenges, too. With only a few stone steps here and there, it has many steep drops. Yet it didn’t seem to borrow the 125-year-old guy we saw foraging for fruit.
