Best of Sicily : Andrea Camilleri

About 10 million copies of his novels have been sold to date,
and are becoming increasingly popular in the UK and North

In a 53:20 mn movie,
Andrea Camilleri, writer and
André Buytaers, film director

lead you on an imaginary trip
across both historical and
modern Sicily.

(click on image).

Just finished to read "Il Sonaglio", the last novel of Camilleri's
metamorphosis trilogy and I'm even more impressed than I was
by the talent of the writer and the humour and thoughtfulness
of the man.

The Camilleri language.
and a glimpse to Sicily's history-geography-society.

Tourist Eye !

That's it.
I was seeking a new specs' frame, because I've lost mine at my granny's, so I wandered
around Châtelet and the Latin quarter, from an optician
to the next one, shooting all around
me - like a tourist...

... but I finally found what I was searching for !

Secret life on a balcony...

The pigeons arrived in my granny's village sometime in the eighties.

Nowadays I think there are more pigeons than sheeps, cows and goats all together
and they breed faster than flying rabbits

I discovered these two chicks in the old granite house's balcony, while doing
the yearly clean up routine - checking the windows still close and fighting back

the ivy which obstinately tries to sneak inside.
I think they were less than one week old.

Three days later, some grey feathers mixed up to the previous yellow...

Last time I went to check their growth, six days later, eyes were wide open and
size had doubled. Good luck chicks !
