Naples, Italy

 Naples is not for the faint hearted. It is dirty and grimy and full of seedy looking people. This was our second time to be in Naples and for some reason I like Naples. But things have changed in the few years that we've been away. There is now a huge North African immigrant population and they are so visible, probably because we were near the train station. They set up market around that area but they don't bother us. I was looking for our old hostel which was next to the train station but couldn't it when one of the hotel people offered us a room for 50 euros a night and we took it. It was low season. Things have changed in Naples and it wasn't for the better.

I remember more beautiful churches and architecture on our first visit. This time more things have closed, they don't have the funds to keep everything opened and restored which is very sad. Would I go back to Naples? Yes! There are still lots of reasons to go back to Naples.
