The reason for stopping at specific towns and cities in Sicily is because each features one or more sites popular with tourists (the Cathedral of Monreale, for example, or the Greek temples at Agrigento). I found myself enjoying the Sicilian landscape in between the cities (the places to eat, drink, and shop along with the innumerable cats) as much if not more than the sites themselves. Here are some photos of how Mary and I spent the time away from our tour guide as well as with him, off the bus as well as on.

My life has had three phases: one as a Jesuit seminarian, recorded in my 2015 memoir (Unsuitable Treasure: An Ex-Jesuit Makes Peace with the Past, Oak Tree Press); another as a college teacher and scholar of 19th century British Literature, best recorded in Coleridge's Progress to Christianity: Experience and Authority in Religious Faith (Associated University Presses, 1995); and finally my current phase as a retiree given to social media posts and photo commentary on my travels with my wife, Mary.
