Woo hoo! Made it to Sicily. I haven't mentioned this yet, but back in Rome, my trusty old arthritic knee decided to blow out on me. I'm not really sure what I did, but it just started throbbing and then the night before flying to Sicily it locked up, wouldn't bend, wouldn't straighten, and I had a mini panic attack. Good thing the airport was small, because I gimped around it on a bent leg like nobody's business.
I suppose it was a good thing that we were just sitting at a gate, sitting on a plane, and sitting in a car, though because sitting was about all I could manage on this particular day.
Anyway, here was my first glimpse of Sicily. We rented a house way out in the middle of very little and it was rather fantastic. We had a view of a mountain from our wrap around covered patio, and a beach down the street. The guy who owned our house (and all of the other houses in the neighborhood… he's clearly developing an empire) had a giant garden with chickens and horses.
All in all, our digs were pretty legit. As this was a travel/gimp day, all I have for ya are some outfit pics, but I can't say enough good about this look. I especially love my new Hamsa necklace!
