    Catania is one of the bigger cities in sicily. A pretty town which was a good example for the italian lifestyle.
    Have you ever seen faster boats than that, from the Sicilian financial guards? Wonder why?

    Catania, Sicily, part 2

    November 9, 2016 in Italy

    As we headed north through the city in search of a restroom, I told my sister the story of how I discovered Nossa Familia espresso bar in Portland. The story is that I was in search of a restroom in Northwest Portland and decided to find a coffee house for that purpose. A little googling led me to the highly recommended Nossa Familia, and I walked in with enthusiasm, only to find that it had no tables and no restroom. I ordered a coffee anyway, and it turned out to be the best cup of coffee ever and that's how I found my favorite coffee place.

    So, I told this story to Kathryn as we were using to find the nearest public restroom. We followed the map on my phone to the Greco Roman Theater where there was supposedly a public w/c, but when we walked in and inquired, the women at the ticket booth seemed a little perplexed by the idea. They asked (in Italian--there's much less English available here than in the other cities we've been to this trip) if we were buying admission. How Kathryn and I looked at each other, and looked at the bit of Roman ruins that we could see from the entrance, and I said, "This might be another favorite coffee shop situation. I think we should do it."

    And that's how we spent the next 1 1/2 hours exploring this fascinating, relatively recent archeological excavation. Houses had been built on top of the ruins throughout history, so the excavation was like decluttering on a grand scale, figuring out what was worth keeping and what had to go. Kept: parts of an 18th century house, walls from a 17th century house, Roman theater, Greek base structure, and artifacts found in the excavation of the site.

    Catania und Syrakus Teil 1/2

    September 29, 2017 in Italy

    Catania. Die wunderschöne Hafenstadt an der reizvollen Ostküste Siziliens stand heute als erstes auf dem Tagesprogramm. Direkt am Fuße des Vulkans liegt die zweitgrößte Stadt auf der Insel Siziliens. Direkt dort angekommen, ging es in den Trubel des Fischmarktes bei bei dem sich die Händler gegenseitig überbieten, wer den größten Fisch an Land gezogen hat. Ohne Scheiß, Papa, von denen kannst du bestimmt noch viel lernen :P Vielleicht klappt es dann ja auch mal mit einem großen Fang bei uns in Deutschland... :) Danach stand etwas Kultur und Freizeit auf dem Programm. Bestaunt wurde unter anderem die Kathedrale von Catania. Doch dies sollte nicht unser einziges Ziel an diesem Tag gewesen sein ...Read more

    Catania, Italy

    Day 31,32,33 Catania

    So for my last city in Sicily and my last for the trip was Catania.
    i'm not gonna lie, i was very tired for the 3 days i was there.
    So i didnt do that much. But thats okay.

    I tried to do a tour of Mount Etna but was a bit last minute and couldnt find one that wasnt a full day of hiking.

    The local delicacy of Catania is Horse meat.
    I nearly tried it, but chickened out and had a pork chop instead.Read more
