Eager to see "real" parts of the city beyond the safety and relative beauty of the Palermo and touristy neighbourhoods in BsAs, I set out by subte this morning for the 1.5-hour trek to Nstra. Sra. de Famtima, the complex of school buildings where the NGO's summer institute was being held.
It was my first time on the E line, a considerably older subway line than the more familiar D we usually take. The yellow subway cars were fairly spacious, but the wear and tear was evident. No advertisements were posted in the cars, and I did not see any musicians/performers or sales people; not sure if this was just an unusual time of day to be traveling, though.
