Sunday trot in San Nicolo


It is always a nice surprise to hear the sound of hooves trotting down the road, soon to be followed by the sight of a horse pulled cart. I don't know if I get more excited for myself or for my toddler who loves horses. While this cart is modern, the bright yellow feathers on the horse's head hint at the roots of this very Sicilian tradition.

  1. X-cuse me, but does it ever rain over there?
    I know we're in the same country, but you never seem to complain about any rain, I on the other hand almost got absolutely lunatic of the gallons of rain that fell here in the North.

  2. Oh yes, plenty of rain! In fact, it feels like spring has come and gone already. Those weather people predict rain, rain and more rain, pasquetta and beyond! I am sick and tired of bundling my son up, staying indoors, and waiting for his latest cold to pass, not to mention mine! Tell me it will end soon! (Was that enough complaining for ya? :))

  6. I agree with you! Whenever I hear the clok-clok-clok of the one horse carriage we have here for tourists I stop and wait for it to show up and then watch it almost enchanted. Elena, my little one, loves it too.
