Play it safe (Naples, again)

After our trip across Namibia, it was time for something more exotic. Naples seemed the right choice. Aware of our unjustifiable attachment to this urban monstre, we failed to hide our enthusiasm (we even enjoyed flying with Ryanair) and went through all the pervasive folklore without anthropological pretensions. Our hunting: horrible children, unpredictable academics, good friends and delicious patisseries. Also got a positive impression from this Scandinavian island called Capri (see picture below, don’t forget to bring your balaclava).

Death comes when you’re eating. Quite rightly.

In Naples, a big sardine-like fish is given to guests between 5 and 6 PM. To please your host, stand up and start eating the dead creature from the head.

Claudio speaking. I'm the co-founder of Freaky Tracks - quite happily, I must say. I taught Italian in New Zealand, undertook fieldwork research in West Africa and tested videogames in Madrid. I am a linguist, a minimalist runner and a travel addict… and nope, I won't stop moving around!
