down our 'Madeira' steps

view down our long and narrow terraced garden - the Madeira steps so called because of the thousands of steps like these all over the island which are beautiful but have a sad history: slaves were used in back-braking labour to make the steep terrain accessible. The time and effort these steps took only give the slightest hint of what they went through.

Thankyou! We love it though it is modest. More will surely follow.
