Had a lazy morning because it was raining, and Luigi (the cook) cooked us lunch – really yummy vegetable soup and a schnitzel thing (these Italians eat so much food!!). Megg and I went for a walk into the main part of Naples to have a look around, had a gelato, Megg bought some cute shoes, and then Jules picked us up and took us back to the house. Luigi cooked us fish for dinner, and we had a quite night watching TV with Zoe.
Next morning Megg and I got up and caught the train to Pompeii! We walked around for quite a few hours and saw all the sites. I’d been there before but it’s a pretty amazing place – a whole ancient city preserved by being covered in volcanic lava – crazy. By the time we had finished walking around we were starving, so we went to the 1st place out of the exit and had an expensive and a bit average tourist lunch. We caught the train back to Naples and had dinner, then Jules took us out for cake and the very best gelato I will ever have in my life. It was seriously one of the most beautiful taste sensations on the planet and I had the privilege of enjoying it – it was chocolate flavor for the record, the best flavor there is. We spent the rest of the evening playing Guitar Hero ‘Beatles’ style with Jules and his brother Marco – it was heaps of fun because you get all the instruments, guitar, bass, drums and microphone J
Megg and I caught the ferry to Capri the next day, and got a highly recommended ham cheese and tomato roll, for lunch (it was pretty good..)
Slept in on our last day in Naples, but when we did get up Jules took us for drives in the Ferrari. What can I say, I won’t forget it in a hurry – beautiful beautiful beautiful car, it sounds GREAT especially in tunnels - WOW!! For the benefit of family member’s blood pressure I won’t say how fast we went, but I loved it and am now saving up for the rest of my life so I can have one. Everyone should go in a crazy fast car at least once in their lives I think - it’s the best fun ever! We had really yummy lasagna for lunch made by master chef Luigi, and then said our goodbyes to Zoe and Jules at the train station, and off to Rome we went. We had such a great time with them it was sad to say goodbye, but all good things must come to an end..
