Olive Picking

On Sunday, we were all lucky enough to be invited to the house of the excellent parents of our excellent Italian instructor, Rocco. The house was just outside Lentini, the site of the early Chalcidian colony of Leontini — not far from Catania, the second settlement — after Naxos — of Naxos’ founder Theocles, and unusual in that it is not on the coast. It does, however, command some excellent agricultural land, as we could tell from Rocco’s parents’ garden — the deal was that we would be fed if we picked olives!
