Accidenti SoleMar - vedendo tutte queste meraviglie - non so perche non sono mai stata in Sicilia.... Ma se vado, dovro andare in inverno quando fa un po' piu fresco!
Grazie mille.

Gosh SoleMar - seeing all these marvellous sights - I don't know why I've never visited Sicily. But if I do go, I'll have to go in the winter when it's a bit cooler.
A thousand thanks!

Yes, Sant'Agata is the patron of Catania (I know it for sure because that day is also my birthday!)

Hi Goganga
I take it your birthday is on the 5th February?

Our local parish church is St Agatha's (spelling is different) and its where I was married, the school I taught in was St Agatha's RC Primary. So St Agatha has a special place in my heart.

Love
God Bless
Emmy

Hi SoleMar and Goganga

What a wee world we live in, we live so far apart and yet are so closely linked in other ways. That's nice Very Happy

I've often thought 'God works in odd ways'

How's this for another coincidence:
I just found out yesterday that my great Grandmother shares the same birth date as my late husband and my youngest daughter.

God Bless
Emmy

wow! great fotos!

Catania is on my list of places to go on my next trip to Italy. One of my good friends from school is from there and I promised her I'd come see her on my next trip. I've never been to Sicily before although I've always wanted to.

Me and my friend actually tried to get down there for a few days this past new years, but tickets were too expensive. So instead we celbrated xmas and new years in Milano together since we were the only ones from school left there!

Bellissime fotografie di Catania. Grazie tanto. Io non visito Catania da circa 10 anni! Tempo di ritornarci.

Saluti,

Solemar,

Beautiful pictures of Catania. Thank you much. I have not visited Catania for 10 years! Time to go back.

Greetings,
