Arrived in Naples on Thursday. Meet up with family in Pietro, a small town of 100 people or so. Funny story, my flight to Naples was delayed...after about 10 minutes of waiting the Napoleons got impatient. Whistling, heckling, shouting, and I'm just sitting like a polite Canadian waiting for the problem to work itself out. Finally 20 minutes they say they are boarding and these two 10 year old boys, shout Viva Napoli and everyone starts clapping. So funny...whatever an Italian is feeling at the time, you will be sure to hear it. Side note...everything in Italy runs on their time, which is whenever they feel like it. Needless to say i am fitting in quite nicely.
Staying with the family in Pietro was amazing, they baked fresh bread in the outdoor wood burning oven, they have a fireplace in the kitchen, I awoke to espresso almost every morning on my night stand, thanks to the warm hospitality of the family
Went to Naples, for a couple hour before heading to Rome. It is dirty and chaotic...did not enjoy it so much.
Roma, Roma, Roma, All roads lead there....well actually it was a Train track, but we will turn a blind eye to that. So I was sitting, resting at one of the many fountains, just chilling and I look to my right and there it was...the coliseum. Thats when it hit....I'm it Rome. Then I had quite the moment, which included thinking what am I doing in Rome! So great! I just got back from the Boca della Verita, which it was closed, I wanted to have quite the Audrey moment and get a picture of me with my hand in it giving a little wink..oh well, not meant to be. Anyway, in short Rome is good, Ive seen some really old things and some new things..and things are good!I leave in a couple days for Venice.
Going to get pizza,
