... black fat guy). On the first night a woman from New Zealand came to stay, Demelza. The street along the vucciria suddenly filled with people at about 23:00, chairs and tables come out and music starts blaring, so we went to check out the action and join in! We went for an asperitivo (cocktails and unlimited food) and a beer and watched the party start. It didn't end until about 5 in the morning, even then children still run the streets playing, ...

Around 5 we returned to our home here in Santa Flavia and had some drops on the way home. Just enough to clean the window, but not wet at all.

After this visit the church was closed but our room was available and luggage arrived, so time for a refreshing shower and normal clothes again (remember biking pants...).
