Lazy Traveling Around Sicily

The last few days have been lazy days around Catania as winter continues it's metamorphosis into spring. It has been a mixture of football and sightseeing as we welcomed Christie's mother Lynn and her friend Wayne who are visiting Sicilia this week.

Lynn and Christie at Nino Mannino's for dinner Saturday night.

Hi George - For some reason I love those cloistered courtyards. I love the ones in California - San Luis Obispo and another one I can't remember the name of. Also the one at Westminster London. I think the ones in Italy will give them a run for their money though.
