Roman Holiday: Arriving in Naples

P1000498 Narrow streets,

Steep grades,

Drive aggressively!


About hermitsdoor

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.

    Dave would be right at home driving aggressively!

      He would have loved all the motorbikes whizzing into on-coming traffic, while threading around double parked cars, with the car behind me honking and flashing 4-way lights as the passenger screamed at yelled at me (which I could see in the rear-view mirror, when I was not watching what was going on in front of me). Yahoos! Good thing that I used to drive in NYC.

      Us “Daves” prefer to call it driving assertively. 🙂 It looks like a challenge.

        Lots of Mini-Coppers and similar size vehicles here. You would fit right in. Sunday, we drove in to town in 25 minutes, then took 1 1/2 plus hours to drive back, at about 5 kph. More changing lanes, for horizontal progress, than forward progress.

    Is the pink house your abode? (6 words).

    • hermitsdoor says:

      No. That was a street corner from a bridge just above our villa. More information in the photo album(s) to view in June. It was good that I took that photo, as a couple of days later, we got lost on a road that was getting narrower and narrower, until we pulled in the side mirrors (remember that “go to the top of the road in Spain”?), but then popped out at the corner. “Ah, I know were we are now”, I exclaimed.
