From Sorrento, Italy to the Amalfi Coast

I forgot to post this from our travels.  Saturday, May 29,  and the last whole day in Sorrento, we took the Bus down the Amalfi Coast. First, getting off in Positano, you can see several shots of the area, and walking down into town (very touristy).  Next, a view of Amalfi Town, with way to many tourists for us. We quickly took the walk into the next little town, Atrani.  There Judy had a walk into the Mediterranean Sea, and we had a great meal at the local Pizzeria. After a stroll through town we went back (through the tunnel) to Amalfi Town.  We then trekked up to the Museum of Paper (Cartas), and back past the fantastic Cathedral, a mix of Moorish and Byzantine flavors, built in 1000-1300, with a new Neo-Byzantine façade from the 19th century.

The topper for the night was when we got back to Sorrento; Judy had an e-mail from a Sacramento Home Winemakers Club friend, saying another wine club couple was in Sorrento that same night. We called them up (using Skype) and met for dinner, thousands of miles from Sacramento, California. Amazing how small the world is, with technology.
