On the map Italy looks like it might give Sicily the boot, but really the Island escapes by a small expanse of water. We are going to Sicily for the first time this year. I am dealing with a changing kaleidoscope of images about this region, swirling foods and cultures enough to make one dizzy. I have always said one can never go to Italy too much. Every trip we take gives us a new perspective. Now I am trying to calm my excitement as to this island that has endured the invasion of a thousand different elements which it has embraced.
