nice to read your post, caroline!! In Italy things are not so bad. I've to say that I live in a wonderful city...yes, naples is really beautiful.. I don't know if you have ever seen a card of my city...I've to send you one... It's on the coast, the sea is not so clean but in some parts is really good. By the sea you can look at a volcano , the vesuvio.That's the peculiarity of seabord the presence of sea and mountains.. There are many monuments and castles...but I can't describe my city with words because to understand a place you've to see it! Don't you think so?? and S.Paulo? How is it??
