Train station in Italy
You end up in Pontecagnano when you notice in Salerno that you are in Salerno. Wrong train. Wrong way. Waiting for the return train to Naples. :-)
When one is traveling, adventures are messes that make for good stories, so keep up the good cheer! Patrick in Pontecagnano train station.
Waiting for the train to Napoli.
Pontecagnano train station. Pontecagnano, Campania, Italy.
Still no train for Napoli, and no train from Napoli. It is a quiet Saturday at the Pontecagnano train station.
Woo hoo! The train to Napoli! Off we go back on track. So to speak.
The isles off the Neopolitan coast. Fishermen spending a quiet Saturday afternoon.
Approaching Naples and a view through the train window full of color.
Meeting up with Sarah, Dennis and Brian at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Napoli to see some of the treasures from the Pompei dig. Here, a roman of whom you've never heard.
Claudius was an emperor with a true appreciation for propoganda. It is certain from the historical records that the club-footed, stuttering emperor was not such a remarkable specimin as here with his head attached. Smart man.
Antonia Minor. A remarkably beautiful bronze statue.
The emperor Marcus Aurelius as a youth. Cool curls in the marble hair.
