Naples Travel Blog – April 24

Not all too impressed with Naples as of yet but some of the people are nice. My hotel is a bit cheap and in a bad area, but the receptionist sure is neighborly. I brought my computer and tablet along with me and my luggage was unfortunately dropped in the way to my room and my tablet was absolutely destroyed. I had no choice but to send it over to Premier Surplus, Inc. so they could recycle it. He said if I wanted a date, he’d ring one right up for me. Seeing I was a nice American and by myself he must have had a kindly relative in mind. I declined but it sure was nice of him. Got some lovely invites from ladies on the streets, too. I had to turn them all down, but talk about your southern hospitality. Gee wiz. — at Napoli Centrale.
