I´m in Catania Sicily and am having an unreal time. I arrived here the other day after a ferry ride from Malta and haven´t really stopped since. I have just got back from a day trip to Mt Etna the most active volcano in Europe and am still blown away by the size and sheer power of it. I sat at 2000 metres above sea level and this is a little of what i wrote in my journal;
``I´m sitting at 2000 metres above sea level dressed like Indiana Jones and watching steam pour out of the mouth of Mt Etna. A short while ago i was at 2500 metres above and standing right beside craters that had been active as recently as July 15th. The main mouth at 3300 metres is currently off limits as it could erupt at anytime. Other tourists in all their wisdom ignore the warnings and continue to climb the mountain with the goal of making it to the top
I´m going to try and make my way to Rome tonight on an overnight train we´ll see how i go!
