Naples - One Image of Perfection

Naples is surely a place where you can find too many images of perfection. And it's not a fact that can surprise a visitor. Naples was always a capital and it's kings and other nobles were very rich. To give you an example, I can remember the story of the last prince of Salerno here. His name was Ferrante Sanseverino. And you will surely find much about his tragic fate.

Not only nobles and kings, - monasteries were very very rich, too. Well, they were populated by the same noble offsprings. There are different of that monasteries (closed, property of the state) in Naples and the region. I like to visit one of them, the S. Martin monastery.

Normally, there are stable expositions there, but I like to see them even often. For example, this church is a marvel, a marble carpet of incredible beauty.


the wooden "carpets" are not less precious. The colors of the wood are surprisingly different and the work of the artisans is so fine that you can't even imagine how could they do such fine inlays.


But than you go out and see the nature... The unbelievable beauty of this paradise on the Earth. The monks knew really good what means to be near the God, you think. Ohhh, I would like to be a monk in this monastery, you continue to think.

Who knows, maybe you will become a great poet just in this moment of intimacy with the Creator...

"Artists' Lights" in Salerno

Salerno, a little town in the Italian region Campania, is my favorite place for pleasant walks. From December, they open the joyful period of "Artists' Lights", and this event just turned it's ...mmm... 3-d or even more edition.

Many Salernitans do not like this pointless expense of great money  (they say, it costs millions of euros). All these sums have to be sent to the culture etc, they say. And, I think, they are right. How many historically important sites could be open with this money? How many persons could pass better their lives, their feasts, if these millions were paid to open museums etc. Many museums in Campania remain closed or open only a part of their expositions (like National Archaeological Museum of Naples or the historically important sites in Salerno).

But the tourists like the idea of the lights the same. I know that many residents of Naples and other important cities of Campania come specially in Salerno to see these Lights.

What are they? I post here some of this year photos. I had not the possibility to visit Salerno enough time to make all the photos but I think I'll show them  to you in December.

By the way, many of this flowers are made from plastic bottles.

Cruise Ship as a Residence Block


An entire life is a travel without end. I could not believe my eyes but it's true. This beautiful cruise ship is ...a multy-storied house. In sense it's a residential block! You can read about it in many articles. There are 106 apartments, 19 studio apartments, and 40 studios in this "house". The apartments cost from $600,000. Relatively not too much if we remember that here, in Italy, a simple flat costs from $150,000.

Imagine this romantic existence: you see everyday new views when you wake up in your flat... And you have to go in your office every day some hours earlier... and than turn home in the evening... Well, for the residents of this house everything is not so complicated. Probably, their life has not such problems. And, as the articles say, they do not live on the ship but visit it from time to time.

And what about the monthly fees and all kinds of taxes? you ask me. Yes, you are right, it's true. There are taxes and fees. $20,000 /month. Here is the main difference because we pay not more than $300 /month normally, yes?

Honestly, I would not like to live on this ship. I would prefer to pay a luxury world cruise. As for me it would be the best way to invest money- But... I'm not a resident of this ship and can't valuate the good and bad sides of MS The World
