        After a few weeks in Sicily I'm starting to figure a few things out. It's becoming clear that there is a Right Way to do things (aka, the "American Way"), and then there is the Sicilian Way. Here are a few examples.



        The Right Way to buy Fruits and Vegetables: Walk into the supermarket. If it's November then it's the perfect time to buy some asparagus because you'll be helping the ...

        We picked up our rental car in Siracusa, made a quick run back up to Catania (short but boring story) then searched out the backroads and scenic routes in a roundabout drive to Noto. Happy to have the independence only a car can provide after relying on public transportation for several weeks. The busses and trains we've used have worked well and have been easy to negotiate. ...

        I will miss the very laid back lifestyle of the Aeolian Islands. The next destination is Catania, Sicily. Its a ferry ride from Lipari to Milazzo. Bus from Milazzo to Messina, then another bus to Catania.
        The road from Messina to Catania hugs the coast, very nice and green but it seems you spend a lot of time in tunnels.

        Catania is a rather interesting and fascinating place. It is full of cathedrals and churches, Roman ruins and some wonderful architecture. It is like a ...
