A celebration in Italy

One of our guides, Angelo, was wise beyond his perceived age.  Along with amusing and informative discourse, which was continuous, he shared his views on the hard history lessons and current problems faced by Siciliano people.  Intermixed were some anecdotes that perfectly captured different ideas.  One that rings true for us…

“Sicily has many problems, but food is not one of them”

 And we have had ample proof including a celebration of years with some wonderful Sicilian fish and wine.  Fortunate to get in with no reservations,  we were given a small table near the door with a promise to be finished before  “otto e mezza.”

The food was fresh, well prepared, and delicious….

 

And even with no reservation and supreme patience wiyh my  broken Italian, they put together a small surprise for that special celebration…
