CARNIVAL IN RAGUSA

There was son et lumière, a parade of masked figures and dancing for all at Ragusa's Carnevale nel Barocco in the city's Piazza San Giovanni on Sunday evening:







Best of all, €5.00 bought you a tray of pasta with traditional pork sauce, a hunk of local bread, a glass of red wine and a container of chiacchiere:


My, that sauce was good!

That's a lot of food for the money! How is it that with austerity measures all over the place, Ragusa can still have such a carnival?

Looks like a lot of fun, Pat! My husband has relatives with the last name of "Ragusa"!

Hi, Constance. I'm sorry you can't see the photos - I don't know what's wrong. Anyway, it was a lot of fun - you're right. x Hi, Rosaria. Yes, very good value. It was all on a small scale compared with towns like Acireale but it was well done and everyone was content. I guess they just decided everyone needed cherring up! Hi, Pat. It's quite a commone surname here, as you might expect. That could indicate that some of his family were from here. Hi, Rachel. Yes, no need to cook when I got home!
