A Quiet Friday


After Thursday's marathon trip to Palermo we opted for a quiet day by first going to the local IPerSimply to re-stock Malibu with fresh provisions.

We had a good 2 1/2 hour staff meeting in the Elephant War Room to discuss various strategies and plan Saturday's practice.  The weather has turned warmer so we should have a good turnout.

After the meeting we cruised the mean streets of Catania...O.K. via Etnea and the Piazza Duomo aren't too dangerous but it sounded good for the blog.

Also on display was a
"TEEPEECAL" Sicilian Peasants Cart

A pub in Catania near the Fundo Bianco, the official team bar of the Elephants

How many Iguana references can I find in a week on two continents?  I think that Debi Murphy may have been pouring drinks but I'm not sure.

The Ruins of a Roman Amphitheater near the Piazza Duomo
 
We passed these on the way back to the car, it had seating for about 15,000 people back in the day.
