Siracusa (Syracuse) is an ancient city on the eastern coast of Sicily. My girlfriend, Ting, and I were invited here to attend the wedding of Ting's sister to a fantastic Siracusan, Christian Mirabella. This was our second trip to Siracusa; last year, we had stopped through for a few days to help with some wedding planning (and, of course, to eat, drink, and be merry).
We met interesting locals and friends of the family, and generally had a good time. Although any wedding can be stressful, and international, huge affairs even more so, this was just too fantastic to be even close to diminished by any one (or collection of ) hiccups.
