Siracusa: Il Mercato

How about if I make this all photos?  That way I can post it without delay and get to sleep!  Photos from our fabulous last day in Siracusa at the market, il mercato, where we had so much fun chatting with the vendors and taking it all in:

And yes, the retreat has begun!  We did yoga to a fantastic view of Mt. Etna beyond the bay of Catania.  I LOVE our group.  And everyone is so very happy!
