Messina, Sicily, Italy

Here I am in Sicily. My first time.  I first of this place not through "Godfather" movies or anything bad, but by a rhyme our Scottish grandmother taught us:

The big foot of Italy 
Kicked wee Sicily
Out into the middle of the Mediterranean Sea

A geography lesson sold as a poem. Good way to get your kids to eat their vegetables.

Noon clocktower show in center of town. The lion comes out and ROARS! The kids loved it, as did I.

This little girl was fascinated by the clock show. I was fascinated by her. But not in a creepy way.
