here is my retransmission

Taormina is a beautiful town along the southeastern coast of Sicily
[at the toe of the boot of Italy]. It is located high above the coast
with a great view of the surroundings [incl Mt Etna]. Much like Malta
this area has been attacked/ rules by many people throughout the ages [Greece, Rome, Saracens, Normans, France (Pope Innocent IV, a
Frenchman, decided the island was his to give), Spain (I realize that
I have mixed countries and peoples, pls forgive me Dr. Rampy!)]. Today
it is a tourist magnet. Lots of shopping [I will try to hold back my excitement!], restaurants, cafes, bars and gelato shops. Let's just
say that we did our part to stimulate the economy of this country.

The cultural attraction is the Greco- Roman theater at the top of the
hill. It was built by the Greeks in the 3rd century BC, then
redesigned to fit Roman tastes when they took over. It is very well preserved and I think it is still in limited use today. The other nice
thing is that the position affords a great view of the coast line and
Mt Etna.

We've been having a great time. Except for about 45 minutes we have
had no rain and the temps have been very comfortable.

This evening we will go through the straits of Messina and later
tonight we will pass by Mt Stromboli another active volcano.

Take care ... Denis
