The Tunis, Tunisia to Palermo, Sicily ferry’s PA system woke us up about 5:30 am
for a docking at 7:00 and a drive off the ferry at about 8:30. In summary we had
been up for three hours plus before the Toyota 4Runner’s wheels touched Sicilian
Took about another 30 minutes to pass through customs and passport control. Our
first stop of the day is 120-km/1.5 hour drive to the south side of the Sicilian Island.
Exiting Palermo isn’t too bad and the highway is an easy drive. Damn if that isn’t the
entrance to the Selinunte Ruins dead ahead.
