Today, I booked my hotel with Elizabeth to go to Sicily at the end of the month.
It’s a working holiday, where we will be visiting some food producers. We are hoping to do some tasting and watching the processes of it all. The hotel had to have pool because Elizabeth said she needed her leisure time! The land in Sicily is over 4/5ths hills and mountains. My family is from Castletermini in Agrigento province, right up in the mountains. Carmelo is from Siracusa on the coast. The island is home to over 5 million people. Many famous people are from Sicily including Archimedes, the inventor of the bath, Domenico Dolce from Dolce & Gabbana and of course, Carmelo Carnevale the world renowned Sicilian Chef.
"La Italia senza Sicilia non lascia immagini nello spirito: qui è la chiave di tutto." That means “Italy without Sicily leaves no image in the spirit: Here is the key to everything “ (Goethe).
