    ... rampant speculation on the tuna preservation and, in later years, canning processes.

    Our hike ultimately brought us to a very pretty and remote beach in a small bay formed by two rocky headlands. But by the time we arrived the nice warm sun that had us peeling layers as we hiked was hiding behind clouds, and the sea breeze kept the beach a bit cool. Filled with optimism, ...

    ... throughout Sicily, which was a necessary defence against many invaders. Unfortunately it didn't help withstand mother nature's earthquakes. In Sicily a town or village is considered 'contempory' if it is only 400 years old! We stayed overnight at the Hotel Poggio del Sole, which was out of town so we ate at their restaurant.
