Naples - Arrival

Took the slow (2.5 hours), cheap (10 Euros) train down to Naples and checked into our hostel. We were surprised to find the train packed with about twice as many passengers as seats. Aren't we in Europe? Evidently if you want a seat, you can pay an extra 5 Euros. Good to know.

Speaking of "Aren't we in Europe?" we are impressed by how funky and dirty Naples is. We knew it had a bad reputation, but weren't really prepared for the amount of graffiti and litter we found.

Our hostel, however, is really nice. We worked on the blog, chatted with other travelers, and used the hostel kitchen to cook up some fantastic fresh gnocchi and vegetables from the market a block away. It was very nice.
