Sunday Post: Stairway

Monks on stairway at Punaka Dzong, Bhutan

Jake’s choice this week is “stairway” … he says “Stairway or simply stairs are names for a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps. Stairways may be straight, round, or may consist of two or more straight pieces connected at angles.” Punaka Dzong is sited on a large curve of the river, so must be built up high in case of flooding. All of the buildings have impressive staircases!

steps follow the tree buttressed tree root down

This stairway is on a narrow walking track that leads into a steep valley in the Gold Coast hinterland … steps have been made against the supporting tree root. Isn’t it beautiful? Finally, here are some ladder stairs … fire-escapes … in New York City.

A-Z Archive: N is for New York

Our youngest son was in New York for two years, during which time we had to visit, of course! Now he is in Paris, and the travel is no less demanding 🙂 I chose New York for the this “N” challenge so I can review and remember a few of our wonderful experiences there.
