I'm posting some photos of how beautiful, dramatic, sensuous and mysterious Sicilian women are!
Ice Cream and a Moped...quintessentially Sicilian. From stockfood.com
A Veiled Sicilian Actress from a National Geographic Spread on Sicily. I still see this magazine turn up in various rooms around our house, even though its over a decade old by now.
Also from NatGeo. What I love about this photo is that even though she is hardly in this photo, the woman is one of the main players in this scene, and although your eye is directed towards the old gentleman, you are still very much aware of the woman walking through the door, and you can tell that the old man is too. Well played, National Geographic.

Thats all for now, I'm longing for Sicily even more than when I started? Even though I wasn't born there, I feel so Sicilian, it's overpowering!! Do you guys have a place like that, somewhere special that you know you belong to? Share plz!
