    ... it ain't there. Second, don't even think of touching that peach unless you're really into high drama and being ostracized in public. Tell the man (yup, they're all men) what you want. (Hold up your thumb for one. If you hold up your index finger he will assume the thumb, and you just bought two.) Once the man knows what you want, he will place it in a bag and take your pennies. You will bite into it ...

    ... golden colored sandstone. The monumental churches and municipal buildings are simply stunning in the late afternoon light. After admiring the main buildings and piazzas we wandered away from the main center and found a little wine bar where we enjoyed a few glasses, some antipasti and conversation with a young British couple spending there last night in Sicily.

Diocletian's Ear, named by Caravaggio for its shape and auditory characteristics is a man-excavated cave said to have played host to Diocletian's political prisoners during the 4th century BC. Another of these "caves" excavated nearly 2500 years ago was, due to its advantageous length and humidity, used as a rope-making factory up until the widespread adoption of synthetic rope in the 1950's.

    I have enjoyed taking part in the Sicilian way of life. I cannot believe at how lucky the Italians are when it comes to fresh produce, and how cheap it is. The peaches, nectarines and apricots are amazing and for under $2 a kilo. I even saw peaches the other day, freshly picked for 80 cents a kilo. And you dont have to look far for a fruit stall as they are on nearly every street corner. I have loved being able to eat so much fresh fruit.
