Many fascinating family faces in Piana degli Albanesi.
Yesterday was Santa Lucia’s feast day and it is a tradition to serve Arancini ( fried rice balls). Savoca’s in Palermo Arancini were world class.

    1. I’m doing alright, thanks. Well, as good as can be expected during the holidays. Have you been to Sicily? It’s almost like a separate country. A lot less commercial anda more rural feel to it.

      1. Holidays are stressful. I have a job where I work with people who have mental issues. I’m a crisis counselor) and this time of year is difficult because I get ‘compassion fatigue’. I hope you are okay, I read about the Tsunami, just awful.

      2. Yes.. Indonesia has taken a battering this year in terms of natural disaster. All is good where I am, as luckily I’m in Jakarta area so not as much happens here. And cool! How long have you been a counsellor for?

      3. It was six years last November. Some days the job is rewarding others just exhausting, but the people there are the kindest, and most genuine people I ever worked with, I wish I could do it while I traveled. I definitely miss going on more trips.
