    Lazy day Tuesday

    March 14, 2017 in Italy

    We lazed, browsed, napped, drank tea, then wine and generally had a great day. Gordon enhanced his experience by running a few clothes through the washer. The house advertises washer and dryer. We found the dryer out on the patio ... a rack ... but it worked.

    For our big activity we walked up the hill to the Restaurant da Mimi for lunch. That pasta looking thing is actually winter squash baked in marinara and mozzarella. Delicious! Gordon had a thick rich vegetable soup and a salad with fresh tuna. We splurged on pistachio profiteroles for dessert.

    On our way out Luigi, the spunky 4-year-old son of our waitress, brought out 2 fresh lemons for us to take out. I think he was going off the reservation, but the waitress smiled and said it was fine. Shoulda gotten a photo of the little fireball.

    Heraculum (Ercolano)

    March 16, 2017 in Italy

    This is the OTHER town, along with Pompeii, that was both wiped out and preserved by the massive eruption of Mt Vesuvius. We decided to buck the crowd and visit it instead. We were thrilled with the rich findings still on display here in quite a small area, especially since we read that most of the important artifacts have been moved to the Archeological museum in Naples.

    This was Pompeii's rich sister so if you want to see the erotica at the brothels you need to go to Pompeii. We are too young to see that stuff anyway.Read more

    Still relaxing ...

    March 15, 2017 in Italy

    One day was not enough. We delayed cabin fever by walking up to the shops for food and are now well enough supplied we don't have to go out again. While lazing on the couch enjoying the view, I was moved by the light to go out onto the patio to snap a couple of photos.

    Dang! Relaxing AGAIN!

    March 18, 2017 in Italy

    We were hoping the predicted shift in wind would clear out the haze so we could try driving the Amalfi coast again. Well maybe it has. We can't tell.

    We are having another bang up day relaxing. And the washer is keeping Gordon from getting bored. Since there is only a rack for drying and the weather is coolish, Gordon is further entertaining himself (and me) by microwaving the pillow cases, shaking each one out while the other one is cooking.

    I made a delicious vegetable soup out of leftover ham, carrots and bitter greens in broth with a dash of pesto. Went beautifully with the loaf of fresh onion bread we bought on our morning walk.

    The cat got right into the spirit she snuck in when the door was cracked and we found her napping in the bedroom upstairs.

    Oh, and I found another sweater that I really like at a cute little shop on the village Main Street. Now I have an alternative to my fleece jacket. We are heading northward in a couple of days and I will surely need it.

    Garbage

    March 18, 2017 in Italy

    Who knew it could be so complicated? Our hostess walked through it in detail when we arrived, and left these handy instructions on the dishwasher. She mentioned bags, but we can't find the right colored ones. And where is the green bin on the street for the organic waste? We're supposed to take it up the night before, but the one time Gordon figured he would just go up and do what everyone else did, nobody was doing ANYthing. So that's what we did.

    The end result is we've been collecting garbage in 5 makeshift bags since we arrived 6 days ago. Our feeble plan is, on the day we leave, to sneak out under cover of darkness and load up the car with garbage. Every time we see a garbage bin along the road with no witnesses in sight we will jump out and drop some (wiping first for finger prints first, of course).

    Amalfi Coast

    March 19, 2017 in Italy

    Tried again. There was a low ceiling but no haze. It was a wild ride and Italian drivers are crazy! Got somewhere between Positano and Amalfi before deciding our stomachs couldn't take much more. We are glad we tried again though. Absolutely stunning views, most of which we weren't quick enough to photograph. Turnouts were all too rare.

    Oh, and we found a garbage bin (one!) to tip some of oysters stash into. :)Read more

    Heraculum 3

    March 16, 2017 in Italy

    The skeletons were found at the docks end of town where people were fighting to catch a boat out of the inferno.

    Our daily visitor

    March 15, 2017 in Italy

    She was a bit late today. We think we should not be letting her in. You see how well that is going.

    Punta Campanella

    October 10, 2016 in Italy

    Vorweg gesagt: Nein, wir sind nicht bis zum Leuchtturm gewandert. Den schönen Blick auf Capri hat man durchaus auch von unterwegs gehabt, und der Weg wurde immer schlechter, immer rutschiger und immer steiler. Also sind wir einfach irgendwann umgekehrt und in einer geschäftstüchtigen Bar in Termini gestrandet. Pasta wie bei Mamma - ausgeprochen lecker... :-)
