January 16, 2012. I've been fighting a battle with a stomach flu the past week or so, but I think I'm finally on the upswing. Thankfully, no one else in my family got it. This picture is reminiscent of our time in Palermo, although at that time I wasn't interested in pizza, or food of any sorts for that matter. Our sea voyage back to Genoa was a bit rocky, and quite a few passengers got sick. However, our trip was nothing to complain about, considering what happened to another vessel in the same waters just two nights ago. After hitting a rock, the entire cruise ship pitched over, and rescue operations are still underway to find many who are unaccounted for.
