A boat arrives that is not ours but docks in the same spot. It is going to Positano a little up the coast. One of the crew is funny to watch, as the boat stops, and people have to get off first, some Asians start to try and board. Relax, he says, slow down and enjoy. He jokes with almost everyone that ...
