... claim the tax back when you leave, similar to non Australians claiming the GST back before they leave Australia. Sue was interested in a ring, but decided the matte finish was not for her, so it stayed there, our bank balance better off! Other then the shops, the star attraction here is the Outdoor Greek theatre which dates back to around 500 AD. Hopefully the photos do it justice as it is stunning. It is still a working theatre, in fact Simple ...
After a good nights sleep and a full breakfast, we were well fuelled for our trip to Palermo, which we was 80kms from where we were staying. Uneventful drive until we hit the town itself. Wow, it is hard to get around with numerous one ways streets. We finished down near the sea and stopped to get out a stretch our legs. It would have been hard to drive around Palermo, so kudos to Neil! Whilst we were stretching the legs a bloke called Christian who had a tuk tuk got talking ...

Well bloggers, today was a hot one in more ways than one. Sicily showed it can dish up some heat...42C it got to today, right about the time we were walking through the ancient ruins at Siracusa. Day started rather late as Neil had a couple of things to attend to, so down towards the south of Sicily we went via the auto strad (freeway).
