As we were approaching Mt. Etna we saw all these villages. They were abandoned. I don't know if people had lived there at one time and left because of the volcano or if it was another case of I have some money and some land , let's build something. There are a lot of properties that are half built here.
Here it is. You can see it smoking! There's Litle P in the corner! This was a fun little trip for us. I think our next foray may be to Cefalu or Erice. Who knows!
I wonder how much snow if up thee now since it has gotten a little cooler here. Dec 31st was so warm we were in short sleeves.
