Flight of uneven stone steps and castle ruins

Giving in to a Walking Stick

I was at the top of Kantara Castle in Northern Cyprus when I finally realized that it was time to bow to the inevitable… It had been worth every one of the several hundred rocky uneven steps to get up there, but now I had to get down. There were no rails, virtually no handholds, my knees were buckling and stabbing with a thousand arthritic needles… I had to start using a walking stick.
