Sometimes We Sicilian think to be the best people in the world..
We are told to be very hospitable, polite and friendly
It's all true, of course
we often forget that everybody can be and ,of course, it's not a question of nationality.
Today I met a dear virtual friend, met months ago here blogging.
I was attracted by her blog first for her beautiful photoes and the way she tells us Her Sicily through her pictures: the point of view of a foreigner living in Sicily! great!
I always try to look at Sicily through my tourists'eyes and I 'm very curious , still learning from them about Us ,Sicily and Sicilian .
Today,my ex - virtual friend invited me for lunch: she opened her green doorway with an overwhelming smile and I immediately felt at home, although we were absolutely unknow each other till then!
She opened her house to me as if I were an old friend of hers
Nothing strange....this is excatly what I'd have done in her shoes..but I did'nt expect she could do for me
(how diffident Sicilian are!!! )
A few days ago I saw a cooking book about Sicilian cuisine, with Italian and Sicilian and English text and immediately I thought to her, to my virtual blogger friend who is learning how to cook Italian in these days.
No hesitation.I bought it and decided to go to give my present.
Why? I just felt it and I was happy to do it
it's not easy sometimes to live in Sicily when you realise that many things don't work..but listening to you about the genuine lifestyle, about the humanity about simplicity you enjoy here I moved , I was happy !
