I've been out for a Sunday giro this morning. "Giro" is a very commonly used word here - I don't think there's an exact English translation, it means to go out for a walk really, normally round the shops or central city areas. It's an essential part of Italian life.
Anyway, I was going to just go out nearby, but then I realised it was an "Ecological Sunday" where vehicles aren't allowed to circulate from 9-13 in order to try and clear the air a bit. Consequently Naples was PEACEFUL this morning so I ventured a little further than initially intended. Yes, you read right, "peaceful" and "Naples" used in one sentence! How nice it was. No motorinos up your a**e, no risk taking when crossing the road...Bliss. Viva domenica Ecologica!
Of course though, the particularly *furbi* (sly?) people just have to take their cars out. I'm not sure if they just don't get the idea or didn't know about it (unlikely as it's normally the end of every month that it's done) or maybe they have some really really important thing to do.
