Erice, Sicily

Erice western Sicily 
8-12 century bc. Built walls high in mountains above sea level. Maybe came from Troy. 
Maybe from Liguria area italy. 
High mountain climb today in bus. Beautiful old stone walls and roads. 
Cooler up here than in trapani which is very hot mid day in summer, forty degrees. Stores all close. 
Just a few hundred pop in this small town of erice. It is beautiful and quiet
Church bells ring as we stroll through a grove of trees and walkway lined w itch benches. Made for meditative sitting, relaxing, contemplating. 
We can see salt pans from the high view by the castle. 
Olive and vineyard flourish here. Windy. Dry.
