A few people we’ve met in Palermo:
Minnie Mouse and her mother, in the gardens of Villa Giulia. The pink polka-dot child is all ready for Carnevale on February 12. After I took her picture, she grabbed my camera to see herself on the LCD screen.
Dorotea and Paolo, married for 62 years. They live in the Kalsa neighborhood of Palermo, the old Arab quarter. She knit the red shawl to keep Paolo warm in winter.
Sal and his partner in Palermo harbor. On a sunny day, it’s good to be a fisherman, but life can be hard, Sal says.
