Mount Etna is an active Volcano located in a densely populated area on the East side of Sicily.  The monster Typhon was believed to be trapped under the mountain by Zeus.  It is possible to drive up to about the 3,000 meter level and go higher using a ski lift.  Fabulous views are available from nearby Taormina.

My adventure through manic Rome continues, this part in color.  Campo de Fiori is an outdoor market, and a lesser known attraction, so it was not so crowded.  Incidentally, Nikon Girl took my picture first.  “Dimensional Portal” is an indoor fountain a few blocks away from the Spanish Steps.  I was chased away by an unusually rude security man as soon as he heard the mirror slap.

Via Colori is held on the weekend before Thanksgiving in Houston, Texas.  This year activities on Saturday were canceled due to rain.  Activities had to start all over again on Sunday and be ready to wrap up by 6 PM when streets would be turned over to traffic.

The final three photos are from Artcrawl which was held on the rainy Saturday in the warehouse district North of downtown.

Despite awful weather a lot of folks came out to Highland Village to see a collection of Ferrari cars.  I look at the people first and the cars later.  The cars are nothing more than bait.

Artcrawl is an annual event that takes place in November, usually on the same weekend as Via Colori.  It is an early Christmas shopping opportunity for collectors.  It’s located in the warehouse district North of downtown Houston, Texas that stretches from the docks North of I-10 where Diverse Works used to be housed to the Hardy Nance Studios where over 50 artists have studios.  This area used to be dodgy, but has become gentrified.  My two favorite venues here are Mother Dog Studios and the Hardy Nance Studios.  Those are where I spent most of my time.  The 2014 Art Crawl is next Saturday.
