I Picked Up a New USB Cable...

...and I'm back in the business of posting pictures on the blog. One thing I'm wondering, though...why does Interdiscount feel that it's necessary to lock up every single cable that's for sale in the store? I'm not joking...the man had to use a key to unlock the lock that was on the front of the little do-hicky that the cables were hanging from. The things cost 24.95 CHF for God's sake. Everybody talks about how safe and honest Switzerland is, and yet Interdiscount is locking up the cables. Oh well...
But, getting back to Amalfi. We really enjoyed our stay in Capri. While we were there, Mrs. TBF must have said about ten times how great it was and that we'd have to go back next year. Then, we went to Amalfi and everything changed. Now, our plans are to go back to Amalfi, stay there, and just take day-trips to Capri, Positano, Ravello, etc. We loved everything about our stay in Amalfi - the hotel, the hotel staff, the town, the restaurants, the seaside location. It was relaxing, enjoyable, and just an all-around great vacation destination.
So, here are a couple of new pictures.

Ok...put the harpoon down. That's TBF swimming in the sea. Our hotel swimming pool was right at the seafront. We just went into the pool one time. For the rest of our time in Amalfi we just jumped into the sea.

Each morning, we'd go down to the pool around 10:00 a.m. right after the buffet breakfast. The novelty had worn off at bit by the time we reached Amalfi, so I wasn't really gorging on bacon and eggs as much as I had been in Capri. So, when noon rolled around, and we had been roasting in the sun for a couple of hours, I would be feeling a bit parched and looking for a little something to put in the old stomach. Of course, Mrs. TBF would order a water (so health conscious!), but since it was now afternoon (albeit, only 12:05 p.m.), yours truly would order two beers and the waiter would bring this lovely little "peanuts/Pringles flower" for us to nibble on with our drinks. I ended up getting two beers because I ordered the large beer and I was told "...Signor, we only have-a the small-a beer-a!" So, I had no choice but to order two.

Finally, here's a picture of the pool area. It was kind of hot and hazy the day I took this picture so you can't see it too well, but that's the town of Amalfi in the background.

More pictures soon.
