Where I stayed
Algora Hostel

Flag of Italy  ,
Monday, October 16, 2006

Caught the 9am bus from Palermo to Catania, a whopping €12.50 each! (Thanks to Lyns cugino Stefano). Checking out Catania today and renting a car tomorrow to see some more. On the local news they reported that Etna is flowing once again and we are hoping to get some good photos for you. We arrived and looked around Catania a bit.  Made our way to the more familiar part of town, in front of the Duomo.  We followed Via Etna down through the large fish market near the Hard Rock and found the Algora hostel.  Everything was so dark almost bleek.  We got a room to ourselves and poked around a bit.  Lyn asked about the underground stream.  We were taked down a few flights of stairs to where they have built an underground restaurant and there, below it all was a stream meandering its way through the rock.  It was all lit up and was similar to being in a furnish cave.  Pretty neat atmosphere.

Looks like our/your other relatives in buffalo are still shoveling snow.
