    I thought I was too, but I’m waiting around for this homicide detective to get back to me….can’t rush him, a crim might go free. So I started working on the end of the novel which is set in Naples and while I was pulling all my photos and other stuff together I thought why not fling it on the blog? It is a very, very interesting city. I think apart from clothes and cars it is still very ancient and very pagan. The least religous city in Italy and you can feel an incredible pulse when there. Best to be there with an Italian speaker, preferably a local.

    half of the pics are mine, Alexander, taken in Naples, the rest I fossicked about for. For an Australian 200 years old is an old city, so these cities like Naples and Rome fascinate me. One day I’m going to Beirut and Istanbul and Tehran…although I might give that last one a miss for awhile
