Sicily

A little while ago, I visited Sicily.
Sicily has an image of a hot and sunny place but it turned out that it was cold in winter.
I went to a long-established boutique called HELME.
HELME was started 45 years ago by a twin madam, Elina and Maira.
They were very fun and wonderful people. We had a delicious dinner together.
On the wall inside the restaurant, there were dishes painted colorfuly and also pictures of lemons. It was very cute.
Restaurants in Sicily has there own pictures like family crests and they are painted on dishes.
Sicily is famous for lemons so I saw many of them.

All of a sudden, there is a monument bulit in Roman period in the middle of a city.
