Acireale, Sicily

Postmarked Acireale, dated 13 July 1984.

Riveira di Acireale (CT) S. Maria La Scala.

This was sent to my parents by one of the members of a large family of teachers. I can remember laughing at the postcards sent because they always had "educational" information in the message. Nothing as mundane as "Weather beautiful" for them! It may have been amusing then, but now I find it interesting.

"Sicily is an island of contrasts - calm blue sea and fiery erupting Etna, dry, dusty river beds and lush green lemon groves. This pretty harbour is a short walk away."
