Off to Caserta to check out the castle. The drive alone was enough for Roger, so we headed to the nearby mall for lunch and gelato. "Street" food for lunch. The rice ball had too much meat in it, where I prefer them to be a less savory. The gelato place had 72 different flavors. I had Mars bar and another flavor, though the Limone looked delicious. They actually had two different lemon flavors. Sort of wished I had been a piggy and gone back for more.

After a stop at the navy base, we headed back to the hotel for a nap. Then, it was back to the local pizza place for a folded pizza and beer. No rice balls this evening. Eating in the pizza place is like eating with a big, noisy, family. It was quite entertaining.

The hot water situation at the hotel fascinates me. It pours out everywhere, and Roger says it has been that way for years. I sure hope it is being recycled or something.

Trying to sort pictures after a long day of travel from Rome to Naples, albeit much more uneventful than the majority of days prior to this.

Daneli
Check out of AirBnb
Naval Base outside of Naples, three loads of laundry (though some would have rammed it into one big machine)
To the Tennis Hotel
Then into Naples proper to be fed by Franco and Mario - you will have to wait and see how wonderful this was.
Back to Tennis Hotel, and then bed for Roger (totally exhausted), and QOC and ACPS work stuff for me (wide awake).
Enjoying this vacation model of having a few hours in the evening to myself.
11 PM

Note

Mostly up to date on the log, and I hope to add the write up of the orienteering event, and lots of pictures shorty - though not tonight - 11 pm in Italy now...ciao for now. :)

Another leisurely start to the day dictated by the fact that Roger doesn't have the stamina to do something physical every hour of the day. If he would like to think that we aren't eating breakfast until 8:30 because I am slow to get going, then I am OK with that.

Danieli
Back to apartment
Public transportation to Spanish Steps
Villa Borghese
A long, for Roger, painful walk, to the main street to get a taxi
Empty taxi...person is in the lavatory. So, ask another taxi to take us to lunch location. Too close to be worth his time and effort, so he says he is on break. Person comes back to empty taxi...younger woman, who doesn't hesitate to take us to Via Alessandria location. Fare was 7.6, gave her 15. We were both very happy. Thank you!
Lunch at 1 pm at a quick food place. Not the best choice, since it was crazy with business people trying to get fed quickly, but an interesting experience. (Not to be repeated on purpose though).
Walked back to apartment.
Nap.
Computer time.
Leftovers for Roger.
Tram to Gelato shop.
Back to apartment and bed at 9 pm.
