What an odd coincidence that you would be descended from Ustica but not on your
Caravella side. I've kept in contact with a lot of folks from your Giuffria
clan. Great family! If I remember correctly, there is a Betty Caravella with
a son named Chris in your clan also.
Maybe I'll make it to Ustica in time for the elections. I would hate to loose my spot on the roster for Mayor!
Your enthusiasm is a pleasure to read. I can't wait to introduce my wife and 3 kids to the place. (I went alone in '99). This trip was planned in a rush due to a rare opportunity in which everyone's schedules were open. Most folks don't know I'm going. We'll be in Italy for 16 days, 3 of which will be spent on the island (July 13 - 15). Maria Coompagno and some of her family will be there at the same time, so it should be a blast.
Wish you all could be there. Watch for my reports from Italy!!!
