Today we headed to the island of Vulcano. It's only a 10 minute ferry ride from Lipari. Our first stop was a sulphuric mud pool. The mud is believed to be good for you. But the smell of it was horrible!!! But the 3 of us went in and lathered ourselves up with mud and let it dry. Washed it off and then decided to go into the ocean to get rid of the smell. We sat on the black sand beach for a while but the fumes were getting to us so we headed out of there. Stopped for a drink before hopping back on a ferry to Lipari. Ate pizza on the terrace again tonight. So good and more wine of course. We spent the night playing skipbo and listening to music.
