    ... was a bit different to NZ for the black basalt rock that is strewn around, as well as lighter rock in weight, and scoria. Craig walked 600 metres up a steep "track" to one crater and found a lot of loose scoria. He used the surf technique coming down whereas normal people walked. As we find everywhere, the camera does not do justice to panoramic shots. We took a lot of photos to try to compensate. They show scores of extinct craters, most now vegetated, which give it ...

    ... today at only one vender, beneath a lot of more popular selling items, I found the fanny pack. Yippie.

    ... marble floors, giant marble pillars, gigantic domes, sculptures, statues, alters, underground crypts, you name it; it’s there in a super deluxe version.

    If you’re detecting a bit of disinterest it’s because I’m preoccupied. It’s about a girl at my hostel in Taormina, Sicily. ...

    ... the cute checkout clerk but she was only interested to know if I required an extra carry bag. What, a taciturn Italian woman? Shocking.

    In India I’m accustomed to double takes from strangers who occasionally hold gaze for that fraction longer. We are, without doubt, a staring society but it does feel good, at some level, to be noticed. Ostensibly, in this desensitized demography nobody gives a damn. Italy was cutting me to size and how.
