What We Saw on the Road to Palermo

February 2, 2013

We drove up from the south on a bright blue day.

“Let’s stick to the little back roads!” I said, and Kim raised his eyebrows.

We saw gorgeous villas abandoned to pigeons.

We saw Giovanni, pastore, who has kept goats for half a century.

We saw abandoned houses the color of persimmons, with trees shaped like corn dogs on a stick.

We had to turn around. (Only lost a few hours.)

We zipped through the cold Madonie Mountains…

…and came out the other side to warm sea breezes. Palermo! Straight on!
