We got out of sweltering Palermo by mid-morning, heading west around the Gulf of Castellammare, toward San Vito Lo Capo, the mountainous tip of northwest Sicily. We drove until the road ran out, stopping along the way to take in the vistas of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
We haven’t seen a cloud in days, and you could easily believe you were at the end of world, peering over the blueist of waters. We picnicked next to a beach made up of an ancient reef, and you can walk 20 meters our into the water before getting wet above the knees.
Tonight, we wandered the old town of Trapini, searching for stone faces above doorways and walking off two enormous pizzas.
And tonight we sleep in air conditioning for the first time since landing on the island!
