8 - 9 April 2017
Driving onto the next town - oh no, flat tire!
This wasn't just a little puncture wound, it was a full blow tire destruction. There appeared to be some sort of electrical component Gerri ran over in the road - a piece of electrical wire was hanging out of the hole from the object within.
Drove with the donut spare for about 50-60 miles to get into town. We ended up staying an extra night here to get an new tire installed on Monday.
A much needed wine after all that un-needed excitement.
The next morning we rode a bus out to some awesome Roman ruins - Valley of the Temples.
From the temple site, looking back at the "modern" city on the bluffs.
Gerri the tour guide...Hanna kind of listening, but just as much interested in the plight of ants.
This sculpture was a modern addition to add to the ambiance.
Agrigento goats - reintroduced to the grounds adjacent to the Temple. They lived here in antiquity, amongst the temples, but had faded away until being brought back.
Remains of an Atlas sculpture.
Hanna making mischief.
The "U"'s - big blocks had been lifted into place by the Romans upon the constructions using large rope slings - the U shaped indentations were on both sides of the blocks.
Wait...was today supposed to be a pizza or pasta night?
