Sicily Day 3

We woke up around noon. We were very tired from swimming on the second day. His mum was planning to go to a proper sandy beach on the third day, but we decided to go to Taormina instead, which is one of the most popular places in Sicily.

Taormina is so beautiful, and the most unforgettable place I have ever visited in Italy. I took many pictures of the town and the seascape and sent them to my mum.

After walking around the town, we had granite with brioche at a popular cafeteria called BamBar. I truly love the Sicilian almond granite (and pistachio gelato). We shopped for matching shirts and local traditional ceramic plates, as well as lots of food, pistachio cream, pesto and wine.

His mum made an appointment at the dentist for him. He said he didn’t want to finish his holidays with the dentists, but she took us to the dentist after Taormina. It was just a check up, but a very funny experience. I ended up watching the whole process in the same room.

At night, I helped her with the cooking. We cooked pasta and omelette!

More than anything else, I want to mention about the coffee his mum makes. She uses a classic coffee pot, not an electronic coffee machine. The coffee was wonderful! The everyday food in Sicily was a luxury for me.
