Ciao from Napoli!
Napoli reminds me of Los Angeles. It is the city everyone loves to hate. It holds its secrets close to the chest. You probably wouldn’t describe is as friendly to tourists. You would describe it as a great food city, if not the greatest food city in the country. Its residents know this, and they have an edge of an attitude about it, which I love. When I first visited Napoli, all I could think about was how it reminded me of Los Angeles and how much I wanted to visit again but next time with Graham.
Like a wish come true, we’ve spent the past week here together. The pizza is more delicious than I remember, and the streets are narrow, dark, smudged with smoke. Vespas race each other up steep cobblestone streets, inches from where we walk. The city is as alluring as ever.
