Agrigento

Left Trapani in the morning and drove southeast across the island towards Agrigento, taking in the expansive, beautiful and diverse island scenery, including olive groves and vineyards.

Agrigento is home of the Valley of the Temples, the remnants of a once thriving Greek city of 200,000. I can’t tell you how many times “Ozymandias” popped into my head: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

Dinner was excellent: grilled veggies, risotto, spaghetti wrapped with eggplant slices, a vegetable stew, finished off with lemon granita.

HP fans: did you catch the photo of the purple-flowered mandrake plant in the last post?

Here are some photos:

Live all you can. It’s a mistake not to.
