I'm about to leave Naples. I had a wonderful time. The total chaos of the city, the extremely warm and interesting people, the great food and the wonderful weather was just delightful. I'm sure I only scratched the surface, but I really enjoyed the Napolitan style. I only wish I could speak Italian.
I was also excited to meet all of the interesting people and the level of civil activism that could easily be sparked into an even more vibrant blogging community.
One thing that was confusing to me was that everyone says "Naples" when they're speaking in English. Why don't they say "Napoli"? Dean Martin says "Napoli", why do even the Italians say "Naples". Strange. In Japanese, we say "Napoli", "Torino" and "Milano" not, Naples, Turin and Milan.
I'm off in a few minutes for the UK. Look forward to meeting the folks there.
Special thanks to Derrick and his hosts for letting me use their place and to Giuseppe for inviting me!
