Standing on a higher ground

This night we had some rain. Thus the sky was overcasted this morning and we used the opportunity to climb up to Belle Venue. Belle Venue is located at the top of the highest hill of La Digue. On 1.2 km distance you have to climb up more than 300 m height. That means, the uphill draft is very big. Surprisingly there were many houses beside the steeply street anyway. It was extremely hard to climb up. But the sight was impressingly.

At noon the sun was back at the sky and nearly all clouds were vanished.

I wonder that people are living at that steeply hill. They have to carry all goods, food, water, building material and other things up that hill to their houses without a car or so. I was told, that people used to live in that houses long before cars came to the island.
