TWO OLD FOGEYS GO TO INSTANBUL

 

Sipping ice cold wine at a Fish House on the shores of the Golden Horn we had the idea of

making fun of ourselves writing up our travel experiences now that we're well into our 60's and hobble more than we stride.  

                  

This is a tale told of how we responded to Istanbul, fourth largest city in the world, of what

we saw, ate, drank, loved, disliked, argued over, reflected on and discovered about the

history and beauty of this unique metropolis.

TWO OLD FOGEYS GO TO SICILY

Sicily has been inhabited, fought over, sacked and influenced by more tribes and nations than anywhere else on earth.   Evidence of human life can be traced back to the Paleolithic and Neolithic ages through cave paintings at Levanzo on the West Coast and Addaura on Monte Pellegrino near Palermo.

More comfortable in bars and restaurants than caves and spelunking, we didn’t get to these shrines of substratal art but we did scratch surfaces in Palermo, Catania, Riposto, Siracusa, Ortigia and Noto, discover granita, somewhat late in life, reach a volcanic beach by accident and dip into both the history of this beautiful island and the story of the Sicilian Mafia.
