A few days of rest
05/30/2010 - 06/14/2010
9am - woke up and got ready to head back to Naples. goodbye florence! you were hot and humid but i enjoyed walking around downtown and seeing all the statues, cobbled pathways and giant buildings! i will especially miss seeing the david and zeus statues.
10am - back on the road
1pm - stopped by to grab some snackies considering we havent eaten all day! i grabbed a crossaint and finally a magnum gold ice cream bar! it was delicious! the “gold” chocolate looked like paint and it was so thick!
3pm - welcome home naples! max and roxie were super excited to see us. they were running around everywhere.
- the rest of the day was spent unpacking, making filipino food, and just relaxing from all the trips
- not being up and about makes me feel uneasy… i just get the itch to do something. maybe its because im far from CA and in another country thats halfway around the world. i feel like im wasting a day that could be filled with adventures/explorations and instead im sitting on a swing in my sisters front yard typing my stories while watching max biting a piece of stick. yes its nice to relax but seeing all these vespas/mopeds/motorcycles go by and i cant help but feel like riding in one of them and having a crazy adventure. but i guess those only happen in the movies… -____-
dinner with kat and derrick’s friends donna and jared. they were the ones who looked after their house and doggies while we were gone. for some odd reason italians love to set off fireworks any day. so of course derrick had to set some off. roxie gets scared of fireworks, her safe haven is her kennel. thats where she hid. its funny how the neighbors in front of us started clapping and cheering at us for having set some fireworks off. i just dont get how they can enjoy fireworks so much…
afterwards lulu and i were gonna walk down the cafe thats 2doors down but i ended up helping derrick fix their internet connection problems. of course everything was in italian so i was fixing things blindley. luckily i managed to fix it and now their internet has been constant instead of going on and off
-------------- The next day
today was a relaxing day. derrick had to go back to work so us girls went to the naval base and explored/bought stuff. we went to Medici, its equivalent to an indoor mall with a supermarket. my mom bought a lot of wine…. i dont know how shes gonna be able to keep within the 50lbs limit of the check-in luggage…
--------------------The next day
we went to this church that had underground ruins. it was like a 3 story building built underground. the first floor was when the greeks were living in naples. then the romans decided to build on top of that street and homes and so the 2nd story became roman streets and homes. then the current inhabitants (napoli-ans) built on top of the roman streets and homes. and thus came about the 3 story underground city.
