Once upon a time in Texas, there was a girl with an appetite and a dream...

Here comes the sun (dooten-doo-doo)

We have had 2 official full days of sun. I had to take pictures to prove to you that the sun does, in fact, exist here in Naples--and oh, it was glorious. Nothing but Italians and their sunglasses. Everywhere.


That's Piazza Plebiscito. Go ahead, try to say it without spitting.


Little darlin', it seems like years since it's been here...

All of the sudden, people ran screaming as the whole city turned sepia.

...and I said, it's alright

Ahhhh...Glorious! It's beautiful and sunny here too! I'm taking advantage and doing laundry (yahoo, right?) and going for a bike ride on the flat, flat Padania Plain. See ya!

So glad you got the sun! IT'S SPRING!!! Popping out all over...even when it rains (which we need, of course, for the flowers). Love the pics!

Great pic of Piazza Plebiscito, Tracie! It made my Neapolitan hubbie very homesick, as he used to live right around that area. Did you have some espresso at Caffe' Gambrinus? I LOVE that place! Thanks for the great blogs and pictures....Naples feels right around the corner because of you.

Tracie b. - in the Galleria next to the piazza there is a small shop that serves "il cafe del professore". Have you tried that yet?

The picture of plebiscito is beautiful, but I also like the one of the street. It seems to go on and on.

Piazza Plebiscito is a beautiful place. But you're right -- when I say it, I end up spitting all over my monitor.

Would you rather have no sun or no rain? It's supposed to be Spring, but my whole yard is brown. We had no rain forever, and then it flooded for two days, and now it's back to the good ole' Texas HEAT! Just thought I'd say hello . . . later!

the photos are great! macerata has been warm and sunny too, but sunglasses are still not as frequent here, i imagine. people are still wearing their winter coats (and WHY? it's like 70 degrees outside! What a bunch of weirdos...)

Hey! Very Nice! Check out this website I found where you can make extra cash.
It's not available everywhere, so go to the site and put
in your zipcode to see if you can find something. I found something and make
and extra $900 a month!
