We arrived early afternoon, armed with a slip of paper from one of our colleagues with the Italian phrasing of 'Please take us to Santa Lucia on the fixed tariff of 23 Euro', and got into a cab at the airport. We immediately noticed how hot and humid it was, 30 degrees Celsius, and how manic the road systems were. Laura tried her hand at speaking the phrase we were given to the cab driver, who obviously had no idea what she was saying, so we resorted to handing over the piece of paper with the phrase on it. Three or so near-death experiences and one angry cab driver later, we arrived at Santa Lucia, and our beautiful hotel.
