    July 8, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Estefele meg lementunk egyet a tengerpartra furcsizni, de vegul ilyan keson ertunk mar le miutan falatoztunk egy jot otthon a pisztacia pestobol hogy Sanyi furdott csak en meg pihiztem egyet addig a strandon. Este elmentunk vacsizni abba a helyi etterembe amit a hazi nenink ajanlott, es tenyleg finom volt a kaja, mar azert extran jonak nem neveznem. La Bussola a hely neve es nagyon sok helyi is jar ide. Feleztunk egy vongoles tesztat es egy calamari frittit. A teszta jobb vilt egyebent de azert a masik se volt rossz de nem is volt kulonleges. Mondjuk ezt az etelt kulonlegesen nem is annyira lehetne megcsinalni. 😉Read more

    Strandolas Giardinin

    July 7, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Hogy kipihenjuk a nyaralas faradalmait ugy dontottunk, hogy strandolunk ma egy nagyot. Reggelihez elmentunk a kozeli boltba, bevasaroltunk es szep kenyelmesen megreggeliztunj majd osszeszedtuk magunkat es elindultunk a szabadstrandra a szallasadonktol, Pinatol kapott napernyovel ami nelkul vagy fizetos helyre kellett volna menni vagy megmekkentunk volna a napon. Mindjart Sanyit megtalalta egy kinai noci Sanghajbol, uh masszazzsal nyitottuk a strandolast. Aztan viz es pihi a parton. A strand semmi extra, homokos, viszonylag gyorsan melyul, pihenesre kivaloan alkalmas. Sot meg epitkezni is lehet homokbol, Sanyinak nagyszeru mamuszt keszitettem, ami labapolo hatasu volt, addig se egett a napon. 😉Read more

    Up and down

    April 1, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    On the way to the ferry I detoured up to the gay resort of Taormina.
    It took many litres of diesel to reach the top, and once there I turned around an went straight down for there was nothing to see except another hillside town. Very pretty to walk around and no doubt good restaurants but it is so isolated - even from the coast - that I cannot imagine staying there.Read more

    No portrait of the artist

    April 1, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    A couple of km before catching the ferry from Messina back to the mainland, I detoured a couple of hundred metres to visit the house of a local celebrity.
    Giovanni Cammarata was born on 29 Sept 1914 and died there in 2002.
    He learned the techniques of working cement as a child, working as a groom in a cement factory.
    He opened a small workshop making cement products after WWII and was granted land on which to build his business. A few years later the land was taken away from him by the State and given to his rival Mr.Rodriguez. I can only guess at the shenanigans going on, but obviously they never became BFF.
    Several years later, GC became an artist; producing a large number of works. Rather than sell them, he clung to them believing that they should become Messina's after his life.
    Unfortunately, the locals thought he was a crank and after his death, levelled his house / shed / workshop to make way for a supermarket carpark (in concrete.)
    His artistic ability has become recognised since 1990. Two restored works are exhibited at the Modern Art Gallery in Messina, and aothers are in the Basile Arts High School. The remains of his dwelling - part of the front wall - are all that remain.
    Even though his fame, if one is premitted to call it that, has spread, the locals still seem unconvinced.
