I have mentioned in previous posts that tourists here in Taormina (and all over the world) leave common sense and clothing at home when they come to a foreign land. Every Wednesday morning, the piazza below my balcony is transformed from our normal residential haven into a frenzy of fruit, vegetables, clothes, shoes etc...as the weekly market comes to town. Here is a before shot:
From my balcony I spotted these two men:
Let me point out that this is a rather small market, frequented by locals, locals who come to buy fruit, vegetables and other household items. I normally walk down my stairs with €10 in my pocket to see how much I can buy. Yesterday for €12.50 I purchased: 1 x tracksuit pants, 2 x long sleeve tops, tomatoes and peaches, clothes all new and fruit and veggies very nice! The tourists it seems go so they can strip off...or let's hope these old, unsightly men went to the market to buy a top since they forgot them in their home land.
