the mountains to the coast
West to Marsala
Palermo is chaos
the blue mountains of Castelemarre and Zingaro
the road from Salemi to Marsala is lined with olive trees and vineyards
it is lush and green
planed and empty
straight road to the south
what awaits me in Marsala
at the saline Ettore and Infersa
in Mama Caura, the restaurant overlooking Mozia.
Tomato's and anchovies.
in the sun
what am I doing all this for?
meet my host Nicola de Spano, who is very friendly
Their house is grand and comfortable
I have an apartment to myself, dark and cool.
after all those miles I am here in a new place
