Hello

I can highly recommend the tagliatelle alla  Bolognese if your passing this way. They pick de herb fresh off the tree. Claudio taught us how to say good food in masculine and feminine after 3 men helped us select desert. I like the fact they would not let you mix flavours.

I had a really special day yesterday. Firstly seeing the italian coast, the toe tip if you imagine the boot really left an impression on me. It’s not very often you would get to see such an iconic land feature. That is unless down the road you see a volcano!

Mount etna

Spent the afternoon in Catania only had a short spell in the fantastic little city. All the streets are flagged with lava rock and its many Baroque buildings. It was so hot in the street felt like the heat was coming upwards.

Had a little walk this morning around the olive plantations were people work the land due to the heat

And saw this cool little truck i think they must have scooter engines in them.

Some more pil boxes to get today

Ciao!

Morning

Seems to be cool and overcast today. Its difficult carrying all your stuff around in the heat of the day but provides some good results

Found some new pil boxes yesterday which was great 3 new as well.

I projected pictures of the Great Orme on the side of the barn last night in Milazzo it produced lovely texture with the  Stone Walls.

Got into to Milazzo and soft lad had forgotten his memory card so we had to venture on the local bus. The funny thing was Allie asked “were was the bus”? to which they replied “there are no buses“.  definitely lost in translation unless they thought we ment open top tour bus 🙂 It reminded me of Prague when i asked the taxi driver how you would great someone  with say ” how do you do” the taxi driver replied we do not say that we are not interested”

Off to look at the castle today and then im going to Catania (maybe)
