... with a car, imagine them with a shotgun!!" According to the Italian Signora, this is the first New Year in living memory when no-one has been fatally wounded.

Another visitor and another new experience. Jan arrives and she and Signora explore Catania travelling there by bus - much more sensible. Whilst they are open mouthed staring at a snow capped Etna that looms magnificently over the city, Signor shares with me the delights of the Aloha bar back in Avola. ...
