Taormina e belissima! I love it here! As soon as I got here, I called Mom & Dad and told them I never want to leave. The view from my hotel room is incredible. The beach is made of little tiny pebbles, so I am definitely glad I brought my flip-flops. Although it is a little tourist-heavy, but since I don't speak the same language as the natives, it turns out that I don't mind the tourists so much (especially the English and Australian ones!).

The beautiful landscape must have gone to my head, because at dinner I was brave and ordered il pesce del giorno (fish of the day). Of course, we are on the sea, so fish of the day means that it was literally caught just that day. Thay brought out a whole plate full of fresh, whole fish, of which I had to CHOOSE one (as if I had any idea what I was doing). So I did. And apparently thy just picked it up off the plate and threw it on the grill, because that is also how it came to the table- WHOLE. And what's more- I actually ate it. ALL of ut! It was delicious! Sicilians definitely know their fish. Not to mention dessert and wine!
