Well, we've moved on! In Naples, we got to do an underground tour thing, crawling through caves under the city, that the Romans used as aquaducts. It was really cool, very cluastraphobic but we went after a fat German guy, so if he made it we would. Great fun. Took a day trip out to Pompei, and nothing you read about it can really prepare you for seeing the whole town. It was great, a little bit eerie to know that the place was buried under ash and lava back in 79AD. It's really well preserved, and huge! It's a whole town, after all. There's even a brothel, with dirty pictures still on the walls! Bwahahahaha.
So after Naples, we packed our bags again, jumped on a flight and landed in Paris, where we spent five nights. Of those days, guess how many were sunny? That's right, 1. The day we left.
Paris was beautiful. A lot cleaner and less chaotic than Italy. We spent a day in Disneyland, which was so cheesy but great fun. Lots of roller coasters. We went to the Louvre (thanks for the free tickets Tali!!), the Chateau of Versailles, Eiffel Tower (climbed it, with Adam silently freaking out), Moulin Rouge (WAY expensive, but good fun). It was a really flat-out 5 days.
Now we're in Rouen, a smaller town north of Paris in Normandy. Here's where Joan of Arc was executed - we're actually looking out the window at the exact spot right now. We're heading off to the D-Day beaches tomorrow, so Adam can do boy stuff. France is great so far, and the sun is out again, which is nice too!
