Naples, Italy

Our first real pizza!

sunny 90 °F

We blazed through Bari and headed to Naples. We found a hotel, and asked the owner Mario where to get the best local pizza. He drew us a map and told us where to go. We decided to splurge, and ordered the special pizza, not knowing exactly what it was, and our expectations were blown away! It didn’t fit our standard ‘look’ of a good pizza, but once again our expectations didn’t mean anything while traveling… the greenish orange tomatoes that didn’t look tasty at all were sooooo super sweet, it was delicioso!!

One of our favorite things to do is to walk through grocery stores and look at all the different foods. The first one we went to had isle after isle of boxed pastas and fresh pastas, we weren’t in Kansas anymore!

We spent a day in the city of Naples just wandering around, stumbling on amazing galleria shopping centers that look like they were straight out of Las Vegas, or is it the other way around?

We also explored our first castle for the trip. It was fun walking through the spiked iron gates and up the cobble stone streets and a much different feel than the temples we’ve grown accustom to visiting.

We also spent time sun bathing with the locals on slanted uncomfortable rocks… but that didn’t stop them from lying out all day. It was incredible to watch them lather on baby oil, rotate and freeze to make sure they get every part of their body darkened (notice the ‘white’ guy in the picture behind robin, he must have stood like that for over an hour). They even call sunbathing “sun medicine” here because they sorta believe that the sun can cure anything (not sure if that includes skin cancer!).

That is hilarious about the sun bathers. Did you see any men in g-strings? :)
