Sicily certainly has seen it all before. Part of the Magna Grecia the island's city of Syracuse (Siracusa) was considered the most beautiful of all ancient Greek cities.  With plenty of Greek Temples, the theaters and cities, there is no shortage of history in Sicily.  Click for more about more about vacations to Sicily click  http://italiantourism.us/sicily-tours/

Here in Vancouver you can buy rabbit at the butcher shop. I’ve looked for rabbit in LA. Good luck (at farmers markets sometimes they can be found… again, good luck). I snatched the little guy an ran “home”. I was also looking forward to making fresh pasta, specially in a hotel/condo room with foreign equipment and also some of mine.

 

Ingredients (dinner for 2 with leftovers for next day):

The Best Views of Paris | Stephen Ip

The Best Views of Paris | Stephen Ip | Travel | Scoop.it


While in Paris, we visited five places that gave us a bird's eye view of the city; Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Montparnasse Tower, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Since it was the off season, the only location where we encountered much of a line was at the Eiffel Tower. Instead of waiting in the regular line that would've taken us all the way up by elevator, we opted for the shorter line that required us to take the stairs to the second level before catching the elevator. It was quite a trek up to the second level but well worth it, not only to bypass the longer line, but to get a closer look of the tower itself.....

In this article, the photographer went to the 'best views in Paris.' Included was the view from the Eiffel Tower, the Montparnasse Tower, the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Notre Dame Cathedral. All of these pictures showed views of Paris from high above. They did not look straight down on Paris, but they still were quite high, like a lower bird's eye view. It brings to mind the '70 Flights in 90 Minutes' image. They both give a view of each city from higher up, but not looking at them directly downward. And, of course, this article lacks all of the planes that were in the image.
