Italy.... Cell Phones

On the train to Rome from a disgusting trip to Naples I had the pleasure of sitting across from a very loud Italian guidette constantly talking on her cellphones. Then all of a sudden it was two cell phones at once!

Naples ... Italy

Last summer we took a train from Rome to Naples to visit a museum and take a small tour of the city.

We same an awesome museum and then walked towards the harbour for some lunch. Lunch was a disaster and  rip off. I won't bore you with the details.

We did have to traipse by heaping piles of stinking garbage with rats running amok.

Avoid this city by every means possible.

Shit I've Heard on Vacation - Lucerne - Switzerland - 2009

On a trip to Switzerland we were in Lucerne.... while walking around the central business district we came across a group of American school kids on a trip. One particularly bright boy, 15-17 years old, asks his leader "Why do they have so many Red Flags with White Crosses on the buildings?"

Still laughing today....
