Corsica is outstanding but I could do without wifi problems/French keyboards
BONIFACIO, Corsica - I cannot quite recall but I think I might have missed a day. I wanted to file a posting Thursday night but I can't get the wireless signal to work at my hotel.
I found a cyber cafe here in the lovely, lovely town of Bonifacio but French keyboards have letters in different spaces then at home and it is very hard to change 35 years of typing habits and it took me 10 minutes to sign on and write this!
Anyway, the trip from Ajaccio to Bonifacio was awesome; past incredible stone villages stashed on impossibly steep and rocky hills, then beautiful views of the bay at Propriano. I stopped at a fascinating site called Filitosa with ancient stone carvings in a lovely valley; then visited the village of Sartene in the mountains with great stonework and a real ancient feel. A lovely central plaza for lunch and then the drive to Bonifacio; a beautiful village perched high on chalk bluffs at the south end of the island; quite close to Sardinia.
There are great boat rides and wonderful walks and hikes and an old town with medieval streets; plus a stunning harbour with great shops and cafes. Bonifacio climbs near the top of my favourite spots in the world.
Hope to write More tonight if I can get a signal, and also send photos so bear with me....
