Italy Again

Ok, so I have had so much fun on this trip, and I’m still having fun, and I’m only halfway done.  Yesterday was so fun.  I didn’t do a post because I was so busy.  My birthday was amazing.  I couldn’t believe how fun the waterslides were. 

That’s on the cruise ship! I also went out to dinner at a French restaurant and had cake and chocolate fondue. Now about today. Today, I started by going to Pompeii, which was fun.  I learned a lot! We had a guide named Charlotte, who was an archaelogos, and she showed us awesome mosaics, the Roman baths, and the public toilets (yuck).

After that, we were walking down the main street to get to the ancient market and this little puppy walked over and started licking my feet! Then I started petting him and he got all happy!

Then we went to this ancient bakery, and you won't believe this! When the archaelogist who dug this up looked inside the oven, there was a stone covering the front opening, he pulled away the stone and….he found 81 loaves of bread that had been perfectly preserved because air couldn’t get past that stone!

After Pompeii, we drove to Sorrento. The water, you could see the bottom even in the deepest parts.


After that, we drove to the Amalfi Coast and the town of Positano.  We went to this amazing restaurant for the best lunch.  We had three courses, first mozzarella, eggplant parmesan, olives, broccoli, bruschetta, bread, and zuchinni.  After that, we had pasta - ravioli, gnocchi, and a zuchinni pasta dish.  After that, we had dessert! We had cherries and chocolate creme cake.  Every single thing there was homemade.  And the view was spectacular.  They had chickens that laid eggs and gardens for the kitchen.

After that, we saw this cute little green lizard.


Then, we went down to the town of Positano, went to the beach, which wasn’t that great, and then we drove back to the ship.  Now, I am going to go eat dinner and then I am going to exchange my arcade tickets for a prize.  Tomorrow, I am going to our house in Tuscany.  Thank you for reading this blog!  Bye!!!
