We are now an hour into the trip. We have left the concrete jungle of Napoli. It seemed to me that they had still not recovered from the trash strike a few years ago. Traveling on the train, we go from tunnel to tunnel. You notice this especially when the train is not air conditioned....tunnels arn't so great with the windows down. In between the tunnels there are fields of golden wheat mixed with sections of green trees that seem to follow a river now and again. There is a lot of corn now and many of the wheat fields have been baled already. We are nearing Rome and my daughter has to have a game of crazy 8's before we get there. It should be quick since she makes up her own rules.....funny how she wins every time.
