rainy day today in Palermo

It's been raining in Palermo. Pilons that hold up bridges have moved out of place on the Palermo-Sciacca highway, a boulder rolled off a mountain and killed an 88-year-old woman asleep in her bed in Mondello ( maybe the house was built illegally close to the mountain) and Corso Vittorio Emanuele stones shone under this bike.

Votive altar at night

This votive altar was in the Albergheria quarter. A the end of this street are five steps down and you are right in front of the gated entrance to the cathedral. I loved the lights strung on in vertical stripes.

Postcard from Palermo

Piazza Bologni, also on the Cassaro, since last year at this time has been auto-free. Mayor Leoluca Orlando has been freeing up various historic piazzas, turning them from parking lots into pedestrian malls. From the blog "Amo Palermo," which means, I Love Palermo.
