Diary of a Slow Traveller – Street Art

With Slow Travel there is plenty of time to take it in. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking

It was almost worth staying on the fifth floor of this hotel with the lifts not working for the funky art.

Street art is one of the many delights of Palermo. It seems no blank wall is left untouched.
