    First of all, thanks to the community for some really good heads up in the pre-travel choice of lenses, and post-travel opinions on post processing.

    I'll post here some pics which I hope will give you some insights in beautiful Palermo and a bit of the rest of Sicily, and since I'm not that good - do go there if you can notwithstanding my photo efforts, the people deserves to be met, and the places to be visited. Oh, and the food...

    Do eat on the streets. Go to the markets, try to find where people gather, there'll be a fried-something boot selling fantastic food. The market themselves look more like Middle East than Italy:

    Above is Ballaro', the biggest and most crowded of the markets. I liked also Vucciria, quite smaller but charming too:

    And if you run low on energy, can't miss with a cannolo or two...
