Where is everybody?


At lunchtime, which is between roughly 1 PM and 4 PM, Sicily’s streets empty out–especially on Sundays. The practice of closing-up shops and offices at mid-day is alive and well. Residents and workers head home or out to restaurants to enjoy lunch and a nap (and to avoid the hottest part of the day), and then at about 4:30 the cities and towns come alive again until 8 or 9 PM, when they are closed for business until the next morning.
