    Quite a thought, Cherie. Your picture surprised me, as I have never seen one taken from that viewpoint

      It was a trip to Etna, Mr C went up on the cable cars to see a live crater. His experience was a little disappointing due to the cloudy weather.

      I stayed on the lower level and walked around one of the extinct Sylvestri craters. The landscape is amazing. I would have explored further if the the weather had been kinder and wasn’t held to a time schedule.

  4. They should host the Great British Bake Off here.

      You have to go a little higher to have enough heat for frying and baking ;-)

      • There’s no need to travel that far.
        I am sure it can also be held in the parliament.
        The debates are getting hotter, aren’t they?

          I gentle reminder…

          My blog is not a place for discussion about current political events.

          I am happy to share my opinions in forums/blogs that comment on these issues and also on a personal level with those who like to discuss these issues.

          If you present your question in one of your blog posts I will try to answer your question ;-)

  5. What a beautiful photo and quote :)
