Sicily

The Scala dei Turchi (Italian: "Stair of the Turks") is a rocky cliff , near Porto Empodocle, southern Sicily, Italy. It has become a tourist attraction due to its unusual white color, as well as by its mention in Andrea Camilleri's series of detective stories about Commissario Montalbano.SICILIA13030_scale-turchi_r_p-d The Scala is formed by marl , a sedimentary rock with a characteristic white color. It lies between two sandy beaches, and is accessed through a limestone rock formation in the shape of a staircase, whence the name. The latter part of the name derives from the frequent raids carried on by Turks

How hard was to draw and paint in the lovely but tiny 500! Though, the hardest part was to make straight lines and circles while the car was “jumping” on the the poor sicilian roads.
