A BRISCULA !


 At 7.00 p.m is still really very hot.... impossible to stay at home or sitting in the cafè..

Why not to play cards by the sea?





He has "carte Liscie" , not winner..

  1. I LOVE all this communal card playing on summer evenings in Sicily. But why is it only men? And do they play for money?

    1. I LOVE too.What about women? Tourists usually notice that there are not women , especially chatting & sitting in the cafès or like here palying. WHY ?
      Hmmm....I always say (smiling) that WE have more other things to do....but I really don't know...
      Many women of the age of those men are usually housewives...and traditionally here Men play cards ( I like and find it very funny beacuse , especially for Brisola there's a secret language of signs that EVERYBODY knows!! but I always forget!! ) but not for money seriously, just few coins ..only for "la posta" just to make it real....

  3. So these guys are not big gamblers!
    The men outside and the women inside always reminds me a bit of North Africa...of course that is only the older generation!

    1. You are right Ann,
      the first time I was in Tunisia, for example, this is what I exclaimed to myself : OH matri mia (that is OH Mamma mia! ) this is the way we, Sicilian, are !!! in an exaggerating way.."
      It's not everywhere like this....but,but,but...
