I was sitting around this afternoon when I heard a weird popping noise outside. I wasn’t too concerned because we are used to hearing fireworks set off. After about 10 minutes I looked out the window.. and there was a raging fire. Hmmmm, what do I do? It occurred to me that I had no idea how to contact the Naples fire department. Like every other Italian that had noticed the fire, I just stood there and watched. Somewhat unfazed by the blaze only feet from my house, after about 15 minutes I started to wonder if I should take Rosco and get the heck out of here. Nahhh, I just stood there taking pictures. Crazy how I would just stand there! But, I figured if there was a real threat the Italians would have left my neighborhood. Curious to see what would happen, I remained outside on my balcony for the 45 minutes it took a teeny little fire truck to arrive. All in all, it was very interesting. If Josh were here he would have loved to have watched this go down.
