My dear friends, in particular, Anya. I hasten to share the latest news. We are well, but adventure got to Kalymnos. Lisa and Julie for some reason tried to sleep through the flight.
Transaero unclear fed somehow. We are positive and we did not stop.
On Spit revealed a conspiracy of taxi drivers. Taxi drivers were not, but they can be ordered from the service at the airport, but at twice the price. We did not succumb to the machinations and yet with great difficulty got himself two cars.
Before the ferry was still an hour when we arrived at the port. So, without hesitation, we went to have a meal in a restaurant on the beach.
After a while we came to a ferry and sail. An hour later we were on Kalymnos. There we quickly rented a couple of small cars and went to look for our shelter.
Holt was quite tolerable, there is even a swimming pool. However, dubious.
We relatively quickly decomposed, moved, gathered, and then went to the Big Grotto. Impressed.
But then a traditional dinner in an extremely tight Panos. Of course, Greek salad, of course, meat course, red wine.
Tomorrow, if the weather will be, let's go somewhere climb.
Hello.

09/28/2014.
The first day of climbing. At night, the weather has arranged a concert. Rain, thunder, and a flurry of true wind. By morning, everything seems calm and even dry. Although the wind was still strong.
We have decided in Moscow that we will wake up early. No sooner said than done. At 7 am breakfast. Short fees and at 8 am we are already on the rocks.
The hope will blow less, we went to Symplegades sector. Dulo there is no less and perhaps even more. But to move somewhere in search of a better life did not.
On the rocks we spent more than 7 hours.
That's what we were able to get out cleanly:
Julia: Valery & Thomas, 5b +, rp 2 go; Climbers' nest, 6a, rp 2 go.
Ira: Phineas, 5c, rp 2 go.
Anton: Valery & Thomas, 5b +, flash; Climbers' nest, 6a, rp 2 g; Phineas, 5c, OS.
Lisa: Vasilis, 5c, flash; Climbers' nest, 6a, OS; Anemodarmeni, 6a, OS; Phineas, 5c, flash.
Even a couple of guys tried 6b from the top. But while pure failed, though made by the movements. From attempts can be noted Lisa's attempt at KVR, 6b. From the top, one hung.
Yours truly nothing special climb, but not in this sector, especially personal. I climbed a couple 6c, 6c +.
Wind, by the way, complicates matters. The rope was formed in an arc in the wind.
In the evening, of course, a restaurant. Suddenly, a lot of white wine. Anya?
Shopping. Lisa Ira zatarilis pink climbing pants.
And walking by the sea under the moon, stories, laughter ...
Anya, we missed you)
Artem, one of the store muShchina remembered our company and, in particular, you, passed you greetings. We almost cried with emotion. I gave him greetings from you. You sunk into his soul. You and pink pants. Forever.

A new day greeted us with a cloudless sky.
Anton made a heroic deed and arranged a morning jog. Preparing for a marathon. We are not preparing for a marathon, so you can sleep.
Whatever it was, after breakfast, we went to Arginonta sector.
Today, we are a little late with the release, and began to climb only 8 to 50.
The day was hot, with 14-30 it was hard to climb. Sunshine. Up to 15-30 roasted and dumped at sea. The sea, by the way, is not very warm. But some Russian fears cold water, when on vacation?
Briefly about our successes on the rocks:
Julia: Loukoumades, 5c +, flash; Adonibert, 6a, flash; Papou, 5c +, flash.
Anton: Loukoumades, 5c +, on-sight; Adonibert, 6a, on-sight; Papou, 5c +, on-sight; Klausis, 6a, flash.
Lisa: Klausis, 6a, on-sight; Papou, 5c +, rp 2 go; Adonibert, 6a, on-sight.
Ira today struggled with fear.
I climbed a cool 7b +, which is even kind was once 7c. On the first attempt, however, failed. But with the second climbed. 7c, there is certainly no. Strain but can be in one place.
The evening, as always, beautiful. Walking, shopping, back pants, coffee, ice cream, rock & roll. For the sake of these evenings is worth living ...

Finally the melt in the sun, we decided to go for a swim.
After a short rest and sea procedures, the idea was born to climb in the throes of yet. We chose the informal sector Summertime.
Purely could only climb Ira and Lisa. The girls got out cool Ammohostos Vasilevousa, 6a. Ira made it the site, Lisa spent three attempts to climb the track clean. But it is very good that did not give up. This fighter.
At this point we decided to finish and went, as always, to plunder the restaurant. Traditionally, a chic dinner, wine, however, this time it was more than usual. Significantly more. Perhaps that is why we then also went to the beach, taking a bottle of wine.
Well, then, you know ... The sea, the surf, wine, moon, stars, talk ...
Ahead of a day of rest.

The feeling of togetherness of different people, probably the most wonderful feeling after love. When not enough time in the day to stop talking. When you do not want that night to end. When you do not want to think about the future, and live only for today.
As with fear thinking that magic can end.
.... Just ... inspired .... Today was a wonderful day ...
