... on the nearby hill. Taromina is unashamedly touristy yet still well worth it. Hosting (another) ancient roman theater this one was pretty special considering its Mediterranean views from the cliff top. The ladies had a lovely afternoon in the local leather goods store (some vegetarians). After some more Aranchini we headed back to camp as our Sicilian adventure had ended. We got back to the ferry and again ended up in our adopted Nonna’s front yard for the ...

In his left hand, he holds a ...

I will, though, go back there and take a picture on a calmer day.
The rally was pretty fun: people ...
