On the Italian Express
The isle of Capri is as expensive as Oslo, Norway.
Taking a hydrofoil over from Sorrento, I flew on the water instead of floating. It costs 27 euros($60).
When I reached port-Marina Piccola , I didn't take the Funicular (a cableway). I ran up the mountain to get this great view from The Piazzetta Umberto, the center of the island of Capri for tourists and locals alike.Here's a nice shot of the clock tower in the town square.
Running back down wasn't as easy. I got lost but it was fun speaking Italian with all these Amicos and Amicas.
L8R, I was on a Limoncello Quest, the Italian lemon liqueur. I wanted to find Louie De Palma,er I mean, Danny Devito's Limoncello Premium Lemon Liqueur (He was on Jimmy Falon's show last night promoting it). but I had to settle for the local variety, made of course in Sorrento, from lemons whose trees overlook the Mediterranean.
Makes me think of Taxi, the TV show. A bunch of NYC cabbies doing their job while dreaming of greater things.
I'm not really a cab driver. I'm just waiting for something better to come along. You know, like death.
