Watch for the little man in the donkey cart

Driving to our villa in Sicily, semi-lost along a deserted road, we came upon a man out for an evening stroll with his friend. He was driving a small donkey cart and his friend was in an equally small car, chugging alongside the cart.
As the two of them blocked the road, we had no choice but to meander behind them for a mile or so.

Being forced to stop hurrying through the countryside and look around made this the most enjoyable part of our journey.

Every time we go for a drive now, the boys compete to look for the next "little man in a donkey cart."
