Nick arrived to Italy on March 24 after a very long journey. He flew from San Diego to New York where there were "technical difficulties" which created a seven hour delay. After finally catching his flight from New York to Rome and then Rome to Catania, his luggage was missing...it went to Chicago! So we brought him home so he could rest and thankfully his luggage showed up the next day. After that, he was able to relax and we took him to Catania to go shopping for a pair of Italian sunglasses. Our next stop was beautiful Taormina to see the Greek Amphitheater, Gene and I hadn't seen it yet. The amphitheater was amazing! Nick will still be here for a little over a week, so we will be doing more posts later.
