I am back in Naples for the first time in almost 10 years. It has become a safe city. And so for the first time I feel as though I am truly experiencing all its wonders. The day was gorgeous. The sun high, zero clouds, extreme heat and humidity and I am thrilled. I walk through the narrow winding roads, sampling grantias - Italian slurpees or snow cones that are quite delicious and gelatos - Italian ice cream. I take in sites of the sea with Mount Vesuvius in the backdrop people out sailing and swimming and a lot of people tanning on the rocks along the boardwalk tracing the seaside. I take in the opulent architecture of the city seeing some splendid churches and statues amongst the tall closely knit buildings in an array of Mediterranean colours. It is lunch time an I can choose between fresh pasta, mozzarella sandwiches, or pizza, I choose pasta. After lunch I take a coffee in a cafeteria. I walk more, I rest, I walk more. People are friendly - they smile and start conversations. Naples is a great place to visit!
