The Amafi Coast

We left Rome this morning and got on a crowded Metro to get to the train station. There is apparently no such thing as a full train in Rome, everybody just squishes in a little tighter. We had a very fast train to Naples, but then a slow, super crowded train from Naples to Sorrento. The only road from Sorrento to Amalfi (where we are staying right now) is the craziest road I have ever been on. About an hour and a half of hairpin turn after hairpin turn as we weaved our way through the cliffs over the ocean. I was quite certain we would die (and did I mention that the bus was jammed packed and we had to stand for half of the trip?). However, we arrived in one piece in this beautiful town carved into the cliffs. We'll probably do some hiking and spend some time at the beach tomorrow before heading back to Naples for the evening. We have heard that Naples is, well, quite colorful and we are attempting to minimize our time there before we fly to Barcelona on Thursday afternoon. I do plan on having a delicious pizza in the town that invented it before we go. And no, I did not take this picture.

You did too take the picture. You took it off of Google images like a good American.

Hooray for Google Images!
