    ... to conquer and rule over Sicily, in his name it goes without saying. in due course Spanish rule followed. So you see Palermo is a city with a chaotic history woven into its little narrow streets and buildings.

    Lois has a list in her book of the top ten conquerers of Sicily and 10th on the list following Italy are the Allies in 1943. The mafia isn't on the list but there are now plaques going up ...

    ... miserable. I kept waking up thinking someone was stealing my bag, but I was just paranoid. It was also freezing cold and there were these people cleaning the floor right next to me the whole night. We took a flight to Rome where we had to transfer to Athens. Yeo, who was kind of dumb for doing this, only had a 30 minute layover. We had to book different flights for a reason Im not gonna get into because it is boring.
