Sicily V – Palermo

I did not quite know what my Italian neighbour meant when she warned me, before I left for Sicily, that Palermo was a bit like Cairo. 

Main entrance to Palermo’s opera house, 
Teatro Massimo Vittorio Emanuele
just before the performance begins.

  1. Looks just like Tel Aviv :)

  2. Saw far worse in Napoli- not in Cairo. Cairo at it's worst were the coptian quarters, where the christians only can fall back on sorting the megacity's waste and keep them and their swine on the roofs. The streets were clean, only the odeur was overwhelming.
