Been away for a week to Syracuse in Sicily, solid 28 degrees the first 5 days and only a degree or two lower in the latter part of last week.  Experienced a lot of blanket lightning, hours of it, spectacular to say the least.

On our way to Syracusa, we passed though Chiaramonte Gulfi and Palazzolo Acreide, the latter giving you an amazing view of Sicily, well worth stopping for.

During the week we also managed to go to Notto, if Baroque architecture is your thing then this is a great place to be.

The beach near Lido di Notto, named Eloro is a quiet and sandy one.

Ortigia itself a lovely place to stay in, quiet, great market, some very good restaurants.

La vita et bella!

Took a lot of pictures
