... 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.

... about doing a "tour" around Palermo for a few Euro! After some bartering, we decided to take an "alternative" tour of the sights of Palermo. Wow, what a tour, down very narrow streets, which we had no idea where we were...could have been off to an organ donation centre!

We caught a normal train back to our where we thought our car was, but it was one station away from where we needed to be. A local couple rescued us and took Neil and I to our car and showed us the way back, which we would never have found, probably stranding the girls back at ...

... vacation. We did everything that was on Tom's itinerary except the sailing in Trapani, which was canceled. Everything worked out just as planned. On Monday, we took the car back to the Catania airport. It's always a relief to turn the car in and not have had any accidents or problems. (except the parking ticket for 40 euros!)
