On Friday I came back to Catania, mainly as a link to get to Naples, and partly because I wanted to be in the town for the weekend, and see it from a slightly different point of view than last time.

The place I am staying in is more like a b&b than a hostel, which has gone through some refurbishment meaning that there is no use of a …

... there before...... the soles of our feet were raw by the end of the day!!

Lia had an absolute ball - she'd been counting down sleeps for months.... Nuka also had a blast but seemed to wane in the middle of the day, she's developed some sort of allergy and has a rash all over her face.... Being in the sun all day hasn't helped I'm afraid.....

It's our last night at Etna Mare, sadly, tomorrow we pack up and head South......

... lunch and Lia found me a pumice stone, which I intend bringing home....

Later that evening, after the requisite siesta, we set off to Linguaglossa to a few places that Seņora recommended: Bar Le Palme for granite and l'Alhambra pasticceria for a local pastry delicacy made of pistachio, almonds or hazelnut. While we were walking around, I was struck again by the groups of ...

... the end of siesta, or so we thought.....

Again, we parked at the foot of the town and set off on foot to look for pistachio delicacies and a toilet for Lia. Fifteen minutes later, it became apparent that this town didn't wake up until 4.30, and Lia's increasingly high-pitched enquiries as to the closest toilet made me start looking down narrow alleyways for a covered spot. Eventually, we found the only open bar, frequented only by old men, and dashed ...

... about 22 people altogether and 13 of them were Australians. We then went to the hotel restaurant and had a beautiful 3 course dinner with everyone. The first course was pasta meatballs extremely delicious. The second course was a veal roll with a spinach roll coated in almonds and this to was delicious followed by fruit salad. We had an enjoyable evening getting to know some of the people. Off to bed now as we have to be up at 6.15am tomorrow. ...

    Lovely friendly staff. Room was comfy, and breakfast was more than enough, though seemed very stale on the first day and fresh on the second. Refurbishments meant no access to the advertised shared kitchen or laundry facilities. Great location and price. Very noisy when other residents were up and about!
