July 14th, 2021 | Syracuse

Left this morning from Ragusa to go to Syracuse. A city on the east coast of Sicily.

Jahid was right. It is amazing. Our favorite place so far!

A Greek colony. With Greek and Roman structures and buildings.

This side of the island is super Greek and Roman. The west side, where I live, is super Arabic.

The city here again is ancient. So human centered. Not machine oriented. Zero cars. A feature, not a bug.

Rented a place in Ortigia, the old town. Spent all day outside, walking.

I could live here long term. It’s fucking amazing.
