There is a story here. Yes, it’s a beautiful balcony. But look more closely. There is something else very Sicilian about this. Hmmm… If you guessed the garbage can hanging from the rope dangling from the balcony, you are correct! You will see this phenomenon all over Sicily. Baskets. Buckets. Bags. Yup. It’s a practical way of taking the garbage out. And keeping it high enough from the ground so the cats, dogs, and other varmints don’t mess with it. Keep your eyes open for this practice during your travels. And smile as you remember I told you about it!
