To the beach

A travel blog entry by johan.maes.1426 on Jul 29, 2015

... a nice and open square (who wants to eat in an open square in the middle of the sun at 35 degrees ?

... Syracuse, although quite knowledgable was not our favorite. To me he looked and acted a little like Richard Obrien (Rocky Horror), not that amiable. Nevertheless, we did learn a lot.
