Wanted for questioning.

In 2002, I was on a cruise and had a day to spend there.

I decided to decline the $100 tour package and do it on my own. So I walked off the ship, found the train station and after navigating a difficult self-serve ticket machine, boarded a train.

Turns out I bought the wrong ticket. I only found out when a conductor came though the car, told me (apparently) I had bought the wrong ticket and wrote me a ticket that was worth $100 US at the time. I had to show the ticket to another US tourist so I could understand what he was saying.

So I bolted at the next station, went back to the ticket counter where there was an attendant, and bought the proper ticket.

After an enjoyable day there, I went to find a train home and wanted to get a bottle of water. Rather than just getting a bottle of water, I had a "broker" accost me and bring me to the front of the line, where he demanded his commission for the $2.00 bottle of water they sold me.

On the way home, I made the mistake of getting off two stops too early. I ended up walking a mile back to the ship through alley's filled with giant piles of burning yellow pages.

In conclusion:

Naples = Tiajuana.

The Great Pompeii Project, as it's been named, seeks to "secure the site's damaged areas and to ensure that this is done using capable, honest businesses, not organized crime,"

Only in Italy...

A multi-million dollar project that close to Naples and they expected to be able to use local companies without corruption?

Simply wasn't going to happen. Roberto Saviano could have told them that.

We went there a couple years ago. We're VERY glad big money's going into the restoration. It's a fascinating and important place.

FWIW, big money's being spent on the Coliseum as well.

Can't wait to go back (would leave right now and leave everything but my camera and laptop behind if the opportunity arose).
