Stromboli

Taxi at the berth:

Sort of a map:

On the North-East there is a larger village (we are here), on the South-West, a smaller one. The North-West part of the island is filled with lawa, there is no life.

This diagram of a route to a local library is a great example of escaping flatland:

The library signs look like ancient volcano worship symbols:

Museum of cinema:

Local businesses specialize in excursions to the very top, where the crater is:

The woman says that the weather is bad today. It is cloudy and windy, dust will get into the eyes, the temperature on top is below 10 °С (50 °F), and when you reach the crater, you won’t see anything:

But many tourists prepare to go anyway:

For those who’d rather not spend six miserable hours in the freezing clouds, there is a plan B.

If you go towards the West of the village for about forty minutes, you will get to a restaurant. From its outside terrace, there is a good view of the crater (when the weather is good, that is). You could admire the mighty forces of nature throw stones and sparks high upwards and devour a pizza at the same time.

The sign:

The top is cloudy indeed:

But the thoughts of pizza make you go further:

The main feature of Stromboli is that all shop signs consist of two halves. Gastronomy:

Pizzeria:

Boutique:

A truck:

The police:

A girl rides a bike to a supermarket:

Buys somethings:

And goes back home:

Handwriting is popular:

A door:

Beautiful:

Or this one:

The volcanic sands looks like black soot hard to wash off:

In reality it is as friendly as regular sand, falls off your feet when they get dry:

This rock is Stromboliccio with a lighthouse:
