Eric, very nice.  Love the second image.  Makes me wonder if the guy was shooting wide angle to capture the young lady in the image  :) .   The last image with the crate as a table , tiny chairs and well dressed woman is cool.
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you John and golvano!

Fish is a "safe" bet at a Sicilian restaurang. Swordfish a local speciality from the Messina strait. Once I got it uneatable, once acceptable and the last time delicious. Do not give up easily!

Eric , more good images.  I particularly like the Priest in a church full of what looks like tourists.  He is probably thinking (or Praying) that they leave money  ;) .  Funny, I have a thing about using a camera when people are worshipping.  I shoot many of the 300/400 year old churches in Goa but normally just me and maybe a Priest.

 Well, there were hundreds of tourists in the cathedral. I was more worried about the young ladies with sunglasses. /Eric
