Flag of Italy  ,
Thursday, January 18, 2007

A little disappointed with Naples - went expecting a nice city
encircling a bay and in the shadow of a looming Mt. Vesuvius. That all
is kind of true but unless you're right on the waterfront it is
impossible to see sea or volcano from almost any other point in the
city. Within Naples you are engulfed by the traffic which seems to
impose more than any other Italian city we visited. Everytime you cross
the street your life is in someone else hands as they zoom around
either side of you. Pompeii on the other hand was amazing. The size of
that place beggars belief.

Had been eating Italian for a while so decided to go for chinese one
night. Amazingly enough mains at this really nice restaurant were
around 2-3 euros - and it was empty every night! We get the feeling
that Italians NEVER eat anything but Italian.
