shorter than they should be, as all out text got stolen, together with
our laptop, all our valuables, and almost our whole campervan, when it
was broken into and trashed in Rome at the end of October. Have a look
at that entry if you want to have a look at the damage the bastards
did. The next month or so´s text is written 6 months later, so we may
have forgotten some bits!)
Further west along the coast are the speactacular ruins at Agrigento, a line of huge Greek temples on the edge of a cliff ridge overlooking the sea
We went back to the van for lunch and this old farmer pulled up with a drum of his home made olive oil to see if we wanted to buy it. While 20 litres was probably going to be a bit more than we could manage (yes, even us!), we bought a litre of his stuff for a few bucks. Doesn´t get much fresher than that. We then passed a fresh mountain spring in the village where people were filling up water bottles, so as we´ve done a few times, we ended up not only drinking the best stuff in town, but we filled the van tank up so were also showering in it!
