One Sunday in early September that seems like a typical summer day, I take my "Vespa" and go for a ride to "Pozzuoli", near "Naples". I park my "vespa" on the seafront, I go to a "bar" to taste an aperitif, and I take the opportunity for some photos ... good vision


island of Capri seen from Pozzuoli


"Baia di Bacoli" , "Capo Miseno" and "Monte di Procida".


Panorama of the historic center of Pozzuoli. Behind can see the island of Nisida of Naples and in the distance the coast of Sorrento ...


view of the island of Capri and on the right "capo Miseno" and "Monte di Procida".

I've been to Pozzuoli twice and walked up to the top of the nearby volcano Solfatari.

A very nice place.

Vespone,

You are right. I was lucky to live in your area for four years.
Great people, great history, great scenic beauty, and wonderful
food. When I moved off the NATO base to Lucrino, I had the
the US Navy send my monthly eating allowance to a restaurant
in Arco Felice.

I would eat there as often as I could. The Italian family that owned
the restaurant would let me eat in the kitchen when the restaurant
was full. I was like a member of the family. What super memories of
a wonderful people. I have never been able to recreate the quality
of that food here in the USA.

Here are some old photos of the area

Vespone,

In your great current photo of Lucrino, my rented Villa was "center of the
picture up the hill on the left". That hill was directly behind my villa. I was
a short walk to Largo Averno (Greek mythological entrance to Hades - the
under world).

Looking across Largo Averno - My Villa was on the left.


You could see Largo Averno from the roof top of my place.


View up the hill on my roof top. We were surrounded by lemon orchards. I think this
is photo during the Winter.


Court yard gate at my Lucrino Villa.


My Landlord Gennaro's wife Dora, their daughter Giovanna and my girl friend
Maria. The Villa was a duplex with my Landlord. Great family.

dear Bob
Is really exciting this "crossroads" of photos of the 70s and modern years...

Villetta Paradiso


"chiesa della Santissima Annunziata", "Vesuvius", and on the left "Procida"


"Scrajo" and in the background of the photo it can see a small part of "Capri"

Vespone,

You live in such a majestic and beautiful part of the world.

I often wondered if the local folks become to use to it.

I would love to be sitting for hours at any of those vistas
smoking a good cigar while sipping a Strega liquor. That is
what I am doing right now in Minnesota.

Ciao and salute amigo.

Roberto Copeland


Notice the Strega Liquor glass. Watching American Football. I would rather be seated at one of your beautiful vistas.
