Trips : Sicilia

Resized ImageKurt and I travelled to Sicily, and island in southern Italy on the 10th of October. We visited first Palermo, a charming metropolis with beautiful buildings, superb food, never-ending shopping streets and a whole lot of street life. From Palermo we went on day trips to the swimming resort town Mondello, and also to Corlone, where several scenes of the movie "The Godfather" were shot. We visited the anti-mafia museum here (which frankly was not very impressive.) We survived the trip, even though Øystein's wallet was robbed (a little bit of drama was only to be expected in a town which is still 100% controlled by the mafia ) In the end of our stay, we visited Taormina, a scenic and historic town at the base of Mount Etna (the biggest and most active volcano in Europe). Taormina was a bit dull outside of season, and especially because it was raining constantly 3 days in a row. However, we had a good time trying out sicilian specialties in the restaurants and checking on the sicilian girls in the disco at night. On the last day, we ascended the volcano Etna, where we walked along congealed lava stones and visited the Silvestre crater (which recently had an eruption).
