AN ENIGMA


A cloudless sky, a temperature of 25 C and the 8th December holiday ensured that everyone was out and about for the final day of Modica's Chocobarocco 2010 Festival and the fun went on well into the evening.   Needless to say there were piles upon piles of chocolate, plus chocolate pasta, chocolate sculptures, chocolate beauty products - chocolate everything, in fact.

But no Sicilian festival is complete without cannoli and these pistacchio and ricotta-filled ones made by the good folk of Bar Elena in Piana degli Albanesi were just irresistible:



"Please don't ask us to cut a cannolo in half", pleaded a notice.  My question was, "Why would anyone want to?"

Absolutely, lakeviewer! Thanks, Laura. You are very kind. I am very lucky, Claude. Hi, Rowena. Yes, everyone flocked to the beaches! I think it's about to end, however. Indeed, WW. No kidding, Lucia! I agree with you - tell 'em to get their own!
