Do you remember our old post about Etna sons coming back home? Here it is: http://www.hotelcorsaro.it/1811-etnas-sons/2012/11/18/
Well, it happaned again this morning.
Few words this time: “Dear Hotel Corsaro, please return these stones to mt. Etna. Thank you“.
Once more we wish to remember Matt and Niki Adlam-Stiles words: “In Hawai it’s a superstition/tradition about the volcano Kilauea that you should not take the stones because it brings bad luck…. they say that Pele (the volcano goddess) likes to keep all her children (i.e. the stones) close to her heart…..“.
More, mr. and mrs. Henning words (who are healty, happy and nice despite all rocks colected): “Thanks M. Etna we have got some best friends […] Through Etna stones M. Etna gets part of our life”
It has been a great pleasure to find our hotel between their suggestions about Sicily and Mount Etna.
“Hotel Corsaro (Contrada Cantoniera, 95030 Nicolosi), located near the Sapienza Refuge, is your best bet. This hotel has simple yet elegant rooms, a wellness area with a sauna and whirlpool, a convenient location, and spectacular views that just can’t be beat“.
If you are planning a tour on Sicily their guide will be precious even if Etna is just a small part of travel. I suggest to read it on Sicily Road Trip Planner page.
Last Sud-Est crater eruption was spectacular (but no danger).
You can find a nice report here (italian only but plenty of pictures): 31 January eruption
