Well, I’ve been blogging on and on about my adopted Sicilian village for several months now, forgetting to give you an overview of the place.
Do you want to see her? Shall I locate her in space?
Do you see why I fell head over heels?
Ragusa Ibla is a huddle of homes and churches, the kind of place you want to cradle in your hands.
She floats like an island, surrounded by a moat of gorges.
Ragusa lies south of Bizerte, Tunisia in latitude. The soft African air wafts through her piazzas on winter days; rainstorms can deposit Saharan sand.
My husband spent a few hours figuring out how to put this Google map on my blog. (Thanks, honey!)
Be sure to check out the satellite view, too.
