One day in Napoli. I arrived yesterday to a hot, humid, busy city. It caught me a bit off guard from the easy, laid back week I had in Puglia. I got to my hostel around 7 last evening and went for a walk, trying to avoid getting hit by the aggressive drivers. Beeping and yelling everwhere, mixed with a good amount of trash. At first I was a bit put off by this city, but I've since come to like it.

I've had great pizza here, which is a good thing since my expectations of the creators-of-pizza were pretty high. I've also been happily surprised my the art here. Decked out churches with great renaissance paintings and incredible sculptures. I didn't expect to see so many great pieces of art here. There are also really great piazzas here with tall towers topped with a protecting saint.

I crammed a bunch into the one day I've been here and now I'm off to the port to catch my 16 hour boat to Sardegna. Wish me luck with the seas.

I am glad the arts and the pizza made up for the rough edges Napoli.

Wow a 16 hour boat ride to Sardegna. I am sure that was adventurous.

I am happy that you have been able to plan such an "excellent adventure" and we able to experience it with you via your blog.
