Dog Days in Sicily

with 2 comments

The heat arrived with a vengeance today (Friday), with a hot wind blowing in from the south, and the sun burning off any morning clouds long before I woke up. The short walk to work had me sweating, and in the evening Palermitans were walking around groaning “Oh I can’t take this anymore!”

Go goodbye spring, hello summer, let’s all go to the beach and get burnt! At least, that’s what everyone seems to do when it gets hot, and skin cancer rates are shooting up – but jeez, don’t mention that to a Sicilian, they’ll block their ears and run away – not talking about something means it won’t happen, or didn’t happen! They’re good at that here, not talking.

  1. Hi Sean,

    Nice post about the heat and the Italian addiction to high doses of cancer inducing sun. But, gotta have that tan!

    By the way, the ‘not talking’ link took me to fresh air – shame, I was curious.


    PS I have linked to you.
