In support of ferries

img_7207

There’s been talk for years about building a suspension bridge across the Straits of Messina. And now Matteo Renzi in the run-up to Sunday’s referendum has revived the idea. It would be spectacular – think the Golden Gate Bridge but much bigger.

Clearly it would be welcomed by the Sicilians, but apparently not by the Calabrians.  “We have so many problems, there’s so much to fix, we can’t afford a bridge” one woman told us.

Anyway, as travellers we would miss ferries. They enhance the expectation, create a special moment and make the world seem bigger.

We are here in Sicily for a week. Time to wash our clothes….
