... noise was of the volcano, but then the rain came and I felt safe again.
In my room I'm sharing with a couple of girls from Scotland/America who I bumped into in Pompeii... They had arrived much later than me and came back a little later too, only, their train broke down so they actually got back to Naples really late! I'm also sharing with a really lovely French girl. She was here working about a year ago, and she is back again now for what sounds like an apprenticeship, ...
... further along, another blast and then as the street opens into the square, there is a flare going off, red smoke in the corner amidst all the protestors, so we quickly walk through the square, Sean taking a few snaps of the centre monument and the crowd, getting a little louder now, but seemingly peaceful enough, not to make us feel like running, quite yet. Across the square the riot police have already positioned themselves and watch and have a cigarette and talk ...
... We admired the grooves in the ground along the way.. which were caused by the carts and chariots that drove along the roads.
We looked at everything we could and tried to stay on track. With only a minor detour from getting lost, we made it back to the cafe. We both got lunch, as we were absolutely starving!! Surprisingly it wasn't even expensive in this cafe. It was more buffet style - but it was still yummy!!
After lunch we explored in our last ...
... point Lisa jumped in and there was great excitement by everyone. One of the other swimmers wanted to show it to his little boy and picked it up, at which point the Octopus inked him and there was more shrieking!!! After all this excitement we thought we had better get going again and had one more stop where Lisa and Olly could jump in and see the fish. Geoff and I stayed on board at this stage and were quite happy to sit and ...
... eat, go shopping, take the family for a walk or just have a chat in the street. However I was not expecting to see a very special police car, a Lamborghini Gallardo. By all accounts there was only two of them in the country and then one was involved in a write-off about a year ago. See shot attached. I also have a video which I posted on Facebook.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Colombo Naples
I stayed at Hotel Colombo for 2 nights over the easter weekend. I found it to be a charming hotel in a very convenient location near markets and near the main station.
The neighborhood was bustling with activity that you find common throughout the city. Located only a short walk down a main shopping street from the harbor and embarkation ports to Capri, Ischia and other places.
There are many late night markets, pubs and restaurants nearby and it is an easy point to get around the city.
In addition, the staff are friendly and eager to help set you off on an adventure, be it a tour of the Amalfi coast or where to eat in Naples.
A lovely stay was had.
