Last night's picture was of a traditional basket-maker who plies his trade on the steps of the Duomo di San Pietro, here in Modica. Both tourists and locals love him.

Now to tonight's quiz and the first question is not a give-away as usual!

M Sicilian port of embarcation for mainland Italy.

I Small island and nature reserve near Taormina.

L Lemon-flavoured liqueur.

A This blogger's favourite bar [minus article for the grammaticians among you!]

Z Sicilian dessert wine.

Milazzo, Milazzo. Was that the dessert we had after the roast pork the other day? Puzzled.

I refuse to use google for Sicily. So I was missing the two Zeds.
