Went on a stag do to Sicily over the weekend. Had a good time. Not sure that Sicilians approve of a group of Brits getting drunk and acting the fool. So we didn't. Luckily we had a number of ladies in the group who were not up for all day/night drinking, or else we probably would have got into trouble with the local mafiosi. The picture is a view of Etna from the Palermo-Catania train. It was the only picture to come out without a blurred tree, bush, telegraph pole or something ruining the picture!!!

Boy climbing to bell? Tbilisi
Whilst wandering the city streets of Tbilisi I happened upon this sculpture. I am sure there must be some historical relevance to the city, but I confess I do not speak Georgian, nor do I have any idea what the letters read!!! If anyone recognises this sculpture please let me know what it is as it is very impressive.
I've been a bit slack keeping up to date, with all the travelling. Anyway, stayed in Georgia for a while. Fantastically interesting place, but so poor. Only thing of interest to us 'Westerners' is that Katie Melua is from there. Oh and I found two Irish bars! They get everywhere!!!
The picture is of a huge church with a crack all the way down the side. The city is on a fault line and suffered a large earthquake about 4 years ago...
