22.11.09 – Thailand. Have you ever travelled to Thailand and Bangkok? Would you like to travel there? Please see below as well.

Mediterranean countries for “The Observer” and more

Italian… “Agriturismi” in Italy? Here there is an article by The Observer about Castellabate, the Cilento national park not very far from Naples, fried fresh anchovies with bread, olives and tomatoes and linguine with baby squid and broad beans. Should I write more about “agriturismi”? I am really addressing this question to tourists, and not to tourist operators…

Cancun, Mexico, Central America and Asia. Have you ever been to Cancun in Mexico or Thailand? And maybe from Sweden? Which are the flights? And where have you been?

Sitges. September in Spain from the UK? In Sitges? Do you know salsa music? Or maybe do you like to eat in tapas restaurants?

Again Italy. Do you like whales or dolphins in the Ligurian Sea or maybe Basilicata with southern Apennines and “bread from bakeries in Matera, wine from Aglianico and cheese from the mountains”? And do you like this list by The Observer?

An island. Sardinia‘s Supramonte Mountains and plateau, Sorgente Su Gologone and the Lanaittu Valley or a Nuraghic village. Any help needed by the Association for Tourist Services, Culture and Environment in Orgosolo or the Agrituristica Guthiddai? Would you like to taste boiled sheep, roasted pork, bread and salami or cheese, local wine and olive oil?

Going on with food, would you feel like eating almonds, carob, olive, pistachio and walnut trees? In Can Marti – Ibiza, Spain, with Swiss owners… Furthermore there is “homemade bread with local jam and honey”…

Spain and France. And what about Cortes de la Frontera in Spain and a lot of place in France like Béziers, the Languedoc, the Canal du Midi and Carcassonne? Or the vineyards of Minervois, Ventenac and the Cathar castle at Lastours? A wind farm there…

Burgundy and gay naturism. A gay naturist retreat in Burgundy by Citronniers with a price of 80 euros per night per person with a 3-course evening meal, full English breakfast, lunch and all drinks included.

Marche. And would you like mountains’ cycling holidays in Alpujarras, Spain, as the second page of the article offers? Or an agriturismo in Le Marche, Italy? Here more information…

Cycling and eating. Do you know the village of Bérchules and the Alpujarras? And the Sierra Nevada above Granada and the Mulhacén in Spain? Do you like mountains’ cycling and picnicking? You should pay 630 euros a week.

Farming. A country house and organically run farm in Le Marche, Italy… What? A five-course evening meal?! Incredible… And “heating is solar-powered and there’s a wood-fired stove fuelled by coppicing from the farm woods”. Plus truffle-hunting not very far from Rimini, Urbino and Ancona. Doubles from €110 including breakfast.

Ssese’s Islands. Do you know where the tropical Ssese’s Islands are? If you would like to know it, please see this reportage by Richard Eilers for The Observer… Sands, forest walks, a lake, fried tilapia, above all the rapids and Bob Marley… And, moreover, as for names, Kampala, the MS Kalangala from Entebbe to Bugala, Lutoboka, Kibale Forest national park and the Bassese and, as for animals, gorillas and chimpanzees…

The Nile. And do you know what mzungu means, who Idi Amin is and where Jinja and the Bujagali Falls are? Clues for my question are the Nile and the lakes Nyinambuga and Victoria… Last, but not least, have you ever been to the Ssese Islands Beach Hotel, the Haven, the Ndali Lodge and to the Gately on Nile? Have you ever met South Africans or Americans?

Aircraft. You can fly to Entebbe from Brussels with Brussels Airlines on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10.40 to 19.35; from Amsterdam and from London Heathrow to Entebbe  with KLM. Among the other national parks in Uganda there would be the Bwindi Impenetrable national park in the south-west, Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth national parks and “the Foreign Office advises against travel to the Karamoja region, in the north-east”.

Difficult situation for Less tourists in Ireland with visitors from Britain down by 22.8 per cent or from other parts of Europe by 20 per cent. Sad situation, but let’s hope…

Southern Italy. What follows is not an ad and I know my readers should be very intelligent. So I add this link to a project for 122 two and three bed villas and townhouses near Sciacca, Sicily, Italy.

Northern and Central Italy. Do you like Castel Fidardo, near Ancona? And Vicobarone Ziano Piacentino, near Piacenza in Emilia Romagna?

Gabriele Lavia, Lucio Battisti e Vasco Rossi. Gli universitari e la provincia di Agrigento


Il programma La compagnia del libro dell’emittente Tv2000, il cantante Ricky Gianco ed il gruppo dei Beatles.

Edoardo Savatteri la musica in provincia di Agrigento. Beh, cominciamo con la lista. Innanzitutto, vi piace il Jazz trio del pianista Edoardo Savatteri, di Michele Territo ed Antonio Fiore? E poi, continuando, i Sax Tape dei fratelli Brocceri, Pablo Dj e Francesco Frumento? Ed i deejay Walden ed Emanuele Polisano o Andrea Pellizzari ad Aragona?

Musica. Una mia prima sequenza con la roulette russa e il re-amore.

Una seconda che manda a quel paese (eufemismo), con gruppi, musica disco e “chiacchiericcio”.

Un’altra con musica neomelodica, un gruppo veneto, un cantante siciliano ed interpreti notissimi.

“Specializzate”, invece, una prima sequenza su un cantante rock emiliano ed una seconda su una stella sarda del pop e potete richiedere una canzone alle e-mail presenti in questa pagina.

13.01.10 – Kipling e Lavia. Ispirato ad un romanzo di Rudyard Kipling c’è il cartone Kim su Raigulp dopo le otto di sera e le undici di notte. E dov’è Ua Huka, tema di un documentario della stessa Tv2000, dopo le dieci meno venti di sera? Tornerà, inoltre, l’attore teatrale Gabriele Lavia dopo le otto di domattina ed anche venerdì quindici, lunedì diciotto e martedì diciannove.

La droga. Martedì mattino ci sarà anche un episodio “stupefacente” (nel senso che parla anche di droga) in L’ispettore Tibbs di un’emittente nazionale intorno alle dieci e mezza.

Gli aborigeni. Seguono gli aborigeni australiani, ma non proprio loro, in Due South un’ora dopo…

05.12.10 – Il Capodanno e la Befana in provincia di Agrigento. Buona Epifania e Befana a tutti, canicattinesi e non. Comincerete a festeggiarla stasera, martedì cinque dicembre, al Comida di Canicattì (a quanto sembra, in via Cesare Battisti) con Andrea Cassaro e Riccardo GaZ Gazziano? Ed il Jazz Trio del pianista Edoardo Savatteri, di Antonio Fiore e Michele Territo all’Elio’s Cafè di Porto Empedocle?

31.12.09 Pronti a festeggiare il Capodanno in provincia di Agrigento? E come lo festeggerete? Cenone e veglione? Concerto in piazza? E dove, ad Agrigento città, in piazza Stazione (piazza Marconi) con Sergio Calì e Mimmo Petrella dei Direzione Sud?

Vasco Rossi e… Dovrebbero esserci fra quattro ore – dopo mezzanotte –  anche Dario Indelicato e Dario Infurna dei Manalia, Federico Macedonio dell’Orchestra Luna rossa, Andrea Vanadia della Compagnia Eva Duarte, Salvatore Festalunga e Alfonso Barba dei Beast Blues Band, Gaetano Agrò degli Aetherea, Carmelo Salemi, Ausilio Polifemo dei Kosatosta e Claudia Rizzo dei Sunrise. Musiche annunciate di Donna Summer, Vasco Rossi, Ligabue, Paolo Belli, Jovanotti e Gloria Gaynor.

– Vasco Rossi, «Sto pensando a te» (video qui sotto).

Quanto ai veglioni, credo che i più importanti siano quelli del Vigneto con Provenzano Dj, Voice Sandro Bit, Dj Ross, Ranucci & Pelusi  A.K.A. Promiseland, probabilmente da una radio nazionale. Giorgio prezioso da questa radio sia al Magic Midnight di Canicattì che al Villa Sikania di Siculiana e nel primo caso c’è anche Costantino Vitagliano.

05.11.09 Arrivato il giovedì universitario ad Agrigento… Alle undici e mezza il deejay Andrea Cassaro al «Le Dinamique» del viale della Vittoria e Riccardo «Gaz» Gaziano ed un certo Leo al «Baraka Lounge» di via Cavaleri Magazzeni.

29.10.09 –  In «Direzione Sud». Beh, non so voi, ma io conosco un po’ – molto poco – l’agrigentino Michelangelo Calì, componente dei Direzione Sud, un gruppo locale che suonerà giovedì ventinove ottobre all’Oceanomare di San Leone dalle undici di sera. Mi chiedo, peraltro, se Oceanomare si scriva tutto unito oppure separato (Oceano mare).

I Beatles e Battisti. E vi chiedo anche se, finita l’estate, continuate a frequentare la terza spiaggia e se conoscete Sergio e Peppe Calì, Claudio Iacono e Mimmo Petrella. Fra la musica dei gruppi a cui i Direzione Sud dovrebbero ispirarsi, io sceglierei Francesco De Gregori e Lucio Battisti, preferendoli a Carlos Santana, ai Beatles, a Zucchero (Adelmo Sugar Fornaciari), Vasco Rossi, Stevie Wonder e Paolo Belli, ex dei Ladri di biciclette, famosi per Sotto questo sole.

In aggiunta, la serata sarà evidentemente ricca comprendendo anche il deejay Andrea Cassaro al Le Dynamique e  Ricardo Gaz Gazziano al Baraka Lounge di via Cavaleri Magazzeni dopo le undici e mezza.

The EMF and Cromwell. From Huey Lewis and The News to the EMF, the British band famous for the hit “Unbelievable”. They will play at a festival – the Secret Garden Party – in Huntingdon on Sunday, 26 July.
