So I have a few minutes and the Doyles asked a few questions so I will attempt to answer them. Sigonella is about 20 minutes away, an easy mostly freeway drive (on the tangentciale). It always feels so relaxing to get there with wide clean streets, driving rules that are followed, and English spoken. We enjoy the BX and Comissary and have an FPO box that people can send mail to for only .44 but we can only receive things that weigh 16 oz or less. Its great that we can send things so cheaply. We have also been to the 2nd hand shop (got some silverware there just the other day). We have been to the library which has a rather outdated selection of books. There is a movie theater, bowling alley and fast food restaurant of which we have only tried the food. There is also a laundromat that I will probably use to wash blankets and such because our washer holds about 8 items. It won't even wash both the top and bottom sheets at the same time. And of course I hang most everything on racks to dry in our apartment. There is a beautiful 2 year old school for kids K-12 (we talked to a couple of high school girls and there are 126 kids in the high school.) Stephanie Doyle- good place to come teach for a year and they even pay your way to go home for the summer. Gotta go- I'll write more later.
