We had a very uneventful and pleasant flight from JFK to Airport with a connection to Catania. We walked 1.5 miles in the airport alone just to get to our connection and through customs. We happily met our driver Giuseppe at baggage claim and proceeded to our lovely Hotel atop the cliffs and overlooking the ocean. This hotel and the surrounding gardens are breathtaking. In the spirit of fighting off jet lag we have been moving all day and did some sightseeing in the town. We met a lovely shop owner, Nina, who sold us a hat for Carol and did a selfie with her. Photo to post later. this resort has everything. Who would want to leave.? On a more serious note, returning to Sicilia brought back many memories of my first visit here. I can’t believe I have let 35 years go by without returning? I am so touched by this golden terra. Off to dinner.
