doesn't this just invite you to come in?
ahhhh, this skirt
something to wear in Italy
an island West of Sicily
it's about an hour from the mainland
in all my visits to Italy I've made friends with shopkeepers, bar owners,
car drivers, tour operators, and priests.
once you realize the geography of Italy you understand the history so much better.
my son & his friend climbed to the top of Mt. Vesuvius (I didn't) early early early one morning,
long before the tourists arrived.
he said the view to the sea was beautiful and well worth the climb.
