Once we got back into Messina, we decided we would try walk around for awhile, yeh well, this lasted about 30 minutes. The Italians believe in siesta, just like the Mexicans, however the Italians take siesta for 3 hours at a time, there was just nothing to do in Messina, all the shops and restaurants where closed, the roads where empty, the whole place looked like a deserted city!We had a very unique experience, in managing to witness an active volcano being grumpy! At around 7:45pm tonight, we sailed past a volcano named Stromboli, where we managed to see her spewing lava into the air. It was extremely dark, and all we could make out was the mouth of the volcano high in the air, but she was incredibly kind and gave us two little explosions into the dark night sky! Beautiful!Lucky Shot - Stromboli giving us a little show!
Tomorrow is another Sea day, the 3rd and final sea day, and we have managed to organize a visit with the captain to the bridge, which does not happen very often at all, very excited by that! Pictures will most likely not be allowed, but getting to see the bridge will be good enough!Anyway, its time for bed now, as we are sailing to Barcelona, I think tomorrow I will post some of the very "intelligent" questions and things I have heard on this boat, some of them deserve 10/10 for stupidity!
