It is absolutely amazing to see how Mount Vesuvius dominates the landscape here, it's so close. No worries about eruptions, it is very carefully monitored these days (so they tell us anyway).
Little Sam has been coping very well with early starts, late dinners and everybody speaking Italian. He is bellissimo! He can say "ciao" and amazed DD and me by knowing the word "statue", how? He was delighted to find that there are baked beans here (although the hotel toaster leaves much to be desired, is that a universal hotel failing?) and has had some delicious gelato. I have only had one pizza so far!
