I am sitting in a beautiful apartmnent in Naples, Italy, having flowing in from Gatwick earlier today. My daughter met us at the airport and we came into the historic city center. As we left home at 6 a.m. this post will be fairly short, as I need a shower and then we are going out to eat Pizza, drink wine and meet my daughter’s friends. She has been living in Italy for almost a year now while working and learning the language.
I have been to Naples once before and it’s not to everyone’s taste, but I absolutely love it. It’s noisy, dirty, loud and chaotic, but also vibrant and overflowing with life. Cars and scooters zoom everywhere, even along pedestrian areas, fruit and vegetable sellers spill onto roadways, voices sound from all around and washing hangs from balconies. The city is full of beautiful women and I shall have to try and behave myself so I don’t disgrace myself – shame, as the temptation is so strong.
