Upon waking up in Positano, my throat felt horrible and I had completely lost my voice. I was not in great shape, but I stuck it out. My glass of OJ certainly helped me out!

Finally we got down to the beach and relaxed on the sand, played in the water a bit, and I even walked along down the beach and found a rock to sit on and watch the waves roll in and out for a time.
The Italians definitely like to show off their butts -- this swimsuit was fairly conservative for the men on this beach!

We continued on from the church, looking around in the shops that were hidden in alleyways about the city. I am not joking when I say hidden, they were in any little side alley that you looked down, but there was no real main shopping road except right at the front of the port.

I think everyone can appreciate "Albergo California" or perhaps more commonly known as "Hotel California"
Let me tell you some more about scary. Our bus driver honked to let any other cars know that he was coming around every corner and in addition to honking, he would quickly cross his heart before every turn in case we all died. Yea, no big deal... just an ordinary bus ride right?
Despite being packed in, standing on a bus winding the small hill roads out of Positano and fearing for my life, it was a rather enjoyable bus ride as the entire time there were amazing views to look at. We eventually got to Sorrento, then took a train to Naples, where we stopped for some famous Napolean Pizza (mine was delicious and stuffed with ricotta cheese), and from Naples got a train back to Rome. By the time we got back, we were quite done with travelling for a time and ready to return to our comfortable beds and hot showers!
And there ends my story of my trip to the Amalfi Coast. Thanks for reading all about it!
