We didn't realize Paestum would be so full of retirees, so for young people like us it was a bit strange. The only decent restaurant in the immediate area was in the hotel, and they gave us a couple of free cocktails while we waited for the restaurant to open. Very close to the beach, and the balcony was very nice. The proprieters were very eager to serve, but only one of them speaks good English so make sure you arrive within normal hours while he's working.

Home made Limoncello and another after dinner drink, home made with herbs which had a strong ...

The blue sea and sky smashing right up against the green mountains, covered with little villas and houses clinging to ...
... garbage littered rocks. The sun was warm and the day was still early. All I could feel was complete physical exhaustion. But, I just couldn't lay there for long. I got bored, so I began to walk. I braved the roads again, ascended the cliff side stairs, and walked the streets of Sorrento, passing overpriced shops and fancy hotels. Finally, I arrived to the mountain roads. They were narrow and winding, but I continued to walk. I passed olive trees, campgrounds, ...
... seems that each neighbourhood gets together and forms a giant percussion band, practicing in an empty garage (where the sound is almost deafening!) and everybody who wants to can play an instrument. Many of these are quite simple, so having musical skill is not a prerequisite for being in the band. There’s a keyboard player who plays the melody and an "orchestra director" who makes dramatic ...

Today's adventure started with another bus ride along the coast. No worse and no less terrifying than that from Sorrento. The curves in the road were a little more tight then I remembered the last time.
Gail and I both were in awe of the scenery from this coastal road.
Entering Amalfi, at a distance you see what appears to be a pristine shining town before you. On entering you see the whole harbor front ...
