A BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY

A student put me on to this and I just had to post it as it is so beautiful. It reminds me that [apart from the post office and the water supply] I live in one of the most wonderful places on earth.

Don't worry if you don't understand Italian - just enjoy. And ladies, enjoy Luca Zingaretti, too!

Grazie al mio studente Luca.

To my students: in this case the phrasal verb "put [someone] on to [something]" means "tell someone about something."

IL TRENO MUSEO MODICA-RAGUSA

You are indeed very lucky. I could almost feel the sun on my face. It is sleet I feel here today. Not good having been on the equator!

Every time I start reasoning why I should put off my trip to Sicily I just look at your blog. BTW, large artichokes here in California are $5.00 each, no trim job either! I live 30 minutes from the "Artichoke Capitol" in Castroville, Ca., you'd think they would be a tad cheaper.

What lovely views of Sicily, you are indeed lucky to be living there. I do envy you your YouTube skills, I must work on this.

Welcome back, mm. Must be quite a contrast for you!
Ciao, pink. You're not really going to put off your visit? I do hope not and it would be great if we could meet during it. Yes, you would think the artichokes would be cheaper there!

Well, I certainly did enjoy Luca and all the other scenery! lol

By the way, I heard on TV today that there is another reason why Italian men touch their nether regions in public - they can't believe their good luck! LOL

Well I did not catch it all by any means. I need to take class again! I do much better with a transcript.

But what a lovely video. Three very beautiful girls, bridesmaids and a bride. Lovely idea to intersperse this little story.

Mamma mia! Luca Zingaretti!!!!!! Welshcakes, you've really put a smile on my face this morning (he is my favorite actor). I am pinching this video and sharing the love.

Wow! It seems to be jaw droppimg scenery all the way. I have two different friends who have visited Sicily and came raving about how fantastic it is. This confirms it.

talking about phrasal verbs I love this:

the difference between

"putting someone up" in your house

and "putting up with someone" in your house...

BIG difference, yeah?!?

I enjoyed the treno museo & also to hear that Simi is doing better.
To answer your question about my visits to Sicilia, I have to say I'm ashamed that in 40 years I've only been back twice.
The last time being last year.
Il paese I'm from is in Provincia Palermo. I'm planning on rectifying that as my family obbligations lessen (does that ever happen?).
Again, I envy your life in Modica, but I couldn't deal of being without water or clothes dryers.

A dopo...

Yes indeed and may tomorrow's International Day of Women be one of peace and reconciliation between the genders.

Thanks for putting me on this gem. :)

Thanks, Ellee. I can upload youtube thigies but that's about it! Glad you liked the lovely Luca, Leslie - and I can believe that about Ital men! Hi, jmb. I'm sure you got most of it - you are too modest. Yes, I think the wedding story is a brilliant touch here. Thanks, M. Hope to see you here one day! Hi, Rowena. He makes me go all weak at the knees! So glad you love it, too. Kissa, all I can say is, your friends are right! Hope you'll visit one day, too. Hi, Gleds. Yes, that's one I always point out. Phrasal verbs are just hell for anyone learning English for it seems as though the things will never end - and they don't! Ciao, Carole. So nice to know where you are from. You must feel very nostalgic sometimes? I can understand how you couldn't put up with the water situation now! But let's keep in touch. I'll drink to that, James! Glad you like it, Sean.
