From Brindisi we headed South to Sicily, where we are currently staying in the city of Palermo.

Of course on our first day we found the three things I've mentioned before and had a little trouble at the "vegetarian" restaurant after Orian's pasta arrived with shrimp. But we did get soy gelato down the street for dessert.

The city sponsored electric bike rentals and had methane (natural gas, almost no polution, though not from a renewable resource.) buses.

We took the bus to the top of the mountain there and saw the famous Monreale church that all done in gold and glass mosaic and we had a great view of the city and sea.

Tomorrow we're moving on to Erice.
