Bifocal Reviews Naples, Sorrento, Pompeii Italy

Here are the next two entries in my journal:

Day five-- Olbia, Sardinia A minor disappointment in some regards was had today. We docked at Olbia, a pitiful representative of the formerly grand Roman empire, but reminded Barbara of seeing older ancestors and hearing them talk passionately about virtually everything. I noticed also that Italian police are about 50% women, and all of the cops look like Italian models.
Day six--Detour to Naples We were scheduled to port in Amalfi...Our driver, Francesco Campion (like champion without the h). Our scheduled destination of Amalfi was cancelled and in it place...Napoli! This was a big bonus for me, since I had wanted to visit Napoli, but was originally told that this cruise just "couldn't go everywhere!" One of my mother's parents was born in Napoli, so I wanted to be able to say that I'd been here. I thought I'd only be able to say that I had been to the land of my "Richiusa" ancestors. The only problem though? The rain.
