A Father's Birthday Neglected and a Capris


It should be recorded that I did not forget my father's birthday on 4 September 2006. I merely neglected to mention it in a fathers day message which was also very close on its heels. So, Happy Birthday dad.

We had an interesting experience in the A La Carte restaurant on the Bari ferry. We were served a mince pattie and chips. What must they thing of us or what is the tour company paying them (can't find the question mark on the italian keyboard do they have them)

Also rudest waiter in the world as well, raised eyebrows at any request. Refusal to serve coffee. Love it.

From Bari, we drove to Napoli. Then caught the cat across to Capri. We did not go up on the optional lunch but instead we went to the Blue Groto by boat. It was amazing. We went through this tiny hole that required a sweaty italian man to lie on Jane (pity it was not the tour guide who she thought was a spunk) and for us to lie on the bottom of the row boat.

The optical illusion is interesting. Neon blue water which was Emperor Tiberius' private swimming pool with his minnows (young boys that he made to distasteful things).

We then had lunch by the water and caught the ferry back after a spot of shopping and then we spent the night in Naples. They drive like maniacs here.

Tomorrow, Pompei then onto to Rome.
