    ... it ain't there. Second, don't even think of touching that peach unless you're really into high drama and being ostracized in public. Tell the man (yup, they're all men) what you want. (Hold up your thumb for one. If you hold up your index finger he will assume the thumb, and you just bought two.) Once the man knows what you want, he will place it in a bag and take your pennies.

    While in Catania we took in a performance of the opera Rigoletto, by Giuseppe Verdi. Of course we couldn't understand a word but by boning up on the basic story line and characters ahead of time (thanks, Wikipedia) it was quite enjoyable. The 125 year-old Teatro Massimo Bellini is spectacular (Vincenzo Bellini is a hometown hero, having been born here in 1801). We sprung for the cheap seats in the "gallery" nose bleed section ...
