Pasquetta

Easter Monday, also known as Little Easter (Pasquetta) is an official Italian holiday that is often spent enjoying the fresh Spring weather with family and friends in picnics at "una campagna", in the country. Yesterday, after ten in the morning, we were off to the store to pick up the necessary ingredients for a feast at Luca's house by the sea in Giardini Naxos. Imagine the confusion... Cars everywhere, traffic lined up for miles, and people standing in the street outside the town butcher. People from all over literally travel to our town to buy meat at Macelleria Fratelli Cerra. I've met people from all over Sicily, while waiting for my number to be called...





The girls preparing the meal in the kitchen... Vita, Maria, and myself.

The boys, Salvo, Antonello, and Luca...
