Sundries

Cinquecento

Here are a few pieces of this and that. Photos of items that just didn’t fit into other posts, so far, and heck, why not put them into a post together. A collection of visual sundries for your Monday. I’m putting in Cinque photographic categories and the Cento is in the accompanying text. Ciao tutti!

(Uno) 1. Lava Rocks and Pumice from Lipari (Isole Eolie). There is a pumice factory on Lipari; the factory is sitting unused and empty. A tour guide told us that there is a legal dispute about what the owner will do with the land upon which the factory sits.

(Due) 2. The Italian junk food – so similar to U.S. junk food, but significantly fewer varieties are available.

(Tre) 3. Mmmmmmm, dry Sicilian cookies – the perfect accompaniment to a cup of hot tea or coffee.

(Quattro) 4. Gotta give this one up to Uncle Michael – thanks for the recommendation and gift. The best hand cream!

(Cinque) 5. Frankenstein & Batman investigate Sicilian fruit purchases, teeny tiny crab apple and unseasonal plum.

  1. I’m love that you’re posting about junk food in Italy. You should make it a series. I love the local Sardinian dolce. Formagella. yummy! Husband ex-wife made us a batch yesterday! Heaven.

  2. I want those cookies! They look so good, I would eat them every single day!!
