Pictures Of The Pool At Hotel della Valle In Agrigento Sicily

Click on the pictures to enlarge them.

When we were on a tour of Italy and Sicily in June of 2007 one of the hotels we stayed in was the Hotel della Valle in Agrigento. While everyone one else went on the tour of some Greek Temples I decided to stay at the hotel and swim in this pool. It was a smart decision. I have seen enough Greek temples. But not enough swimming pools. And I had the pool all to myself. I swam undisturbed for 2 or 3 hours. Finally a couple came out and sar in the chairs. But they were quiet.
I remember how pleasant this place was surrounded by greenery.
A nice and quiet respite. My idea of heaven on earth is a nice swimming pool like this one with no one else around.

Tuba Skinny "Crazy About You" - Royal St.- 4/10/15 Tuba Skinny To Play In The Washingnton D.C. Area For The First Time Sat. Night 9pm to Midnite At The Spanish Ballroom At Glen Echo Park Maryland

This is my favorite band. I have been following them here on youtube since 2009. They are finally coming to the Washington D.C. area for the first time. They will be playing this coming Sat. Nite 9pm to midnite.
 at the Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo Park in Maryland near D.C.
I plan to be there. I have never seen them in person. Not even one time. I would rather see them live on Royal Street in New Orleans un amplified but this will have to do for the time being. I really think they sound better un amplified and out on the street. I call what they do "street music".
