Trapani - and a short breather

I'm currently in the beautiful, if quiet and out of season old town of Trapani, on the westernmost tip of Sicily. It's very beautiful with worn stucco frontages and everything in a muted pinkish or yellow ochre. It's warm, though a little muggy, and pretty much perfect to enjoy a coffee or two whilst reading Tomasi di Lampedusa's excellent "the Leopard".
Friends are arriving tomorrow at which point we will all decamp to a rented houses somewhere and I'm sure a small amount of food will be eaten, followed by the odd glass of wine..
