A Night in Catania
Last night I had the pleasure of going out with our friends Carmelo and Flavia. In Catania, the night was alive! On every corner sat a packed bar with live music, and the streets were full of conversation. We started the evening with a delightful meal in the Trattoria del Cavaliere. I finally had my Spaghetti con Nero di Seppia! It’s not a plate for those concerned about their appearance, as your mouth turns completely black. However, the taste is completely worth it! Carmelo and I shared a plate of frutta del mare marinata, and for our second plate we shared a riciola cooked in aqua de mare. This fish was mouth watering, and the broth was perfect!
After dinner, we spent the night strolling the streets from one place to another. Enjoying the atmosphere and most importantly, the company.
I have been carried away to a world that stops to taste the sweetness of the land, and admire all the treasures that their rich black soil provides. Now my journey begins as we enjoy the simple pleasures of the life! We came from different worlds, spoke different languages, but that didn’t stop us. We have our home in Sicily, and many adventures await us. Sicilia is our home!
Sailing across the Gulf of Mexico, I had the pleasure of meeting the most amazing man. Little did I know that he would eventually become the love of my life and would change my world. We were both working aboard a cruise line at the time. He, an Italian Engineer, and I, the featured headlining Vocalist, met at a crew party and the rest is history. Our beginning...
