Fish, fish, fish

As in most islands, fish plays an important role in Sicily, not only for trade, but also for cultural identity. The fish market in Catania gives strong expression to this. As with so many places in this world, the new and the old, the traditional and the modern mix to create something of their own. And sometimes one is not sure how much authenticity can be preserved under the pressure of tourism.
In any case, one should not be squeamish when visiting. The air tastes of sea and fish, the ground is slippery, and one of the dominant colors is blood red. What an experience!
