Obsidian is dense, glass-like and black, and was used for arrowheads, knives, etc. There's some lovely jewellery here incorporating obsidian. Pumice was Lipari's major industry and it has been exported for numerous uses around the world. The other real surprise here at the Museum was the world's most complete collection of ...

Grace has taken to floating on her back in the Wahu swimming vest. She's a real water baby now and the Wahu vest has ...
... else could happen. This whole experience was so weird, the day is still beautiful, there is nothing to show that we just experienced this turmoil..... Wow! Shortly after we dropped the anchor, lunch was served. Jacques having these funny looking, red, long hairy shrimp, and me with mortadella (pistachio stuffed salami) and Greek salad. For dinner, we took the zodiac into the tiny harbor of Panarea, and ate at RAYA, a beautiful hotel/restaurant owned by RAYA, and ...
