    ... on Tesla. Just Google "Wait But Why" and you'll find it.

    OK, jumping off my soapbox (or rolling off the psych couch), back to the Sicilian countryside. From Modica we navigated to Ragusa, where we left the car outside the old city and spent a couple of hours walking the beautiful old hilltop center.

    ... hand, this is how it is and we walk around some smaller craters nearby and get the sense of the mountain.
