Day 3

Last night we had our second ice ceam. This time we could choose our own flavours.

Today we were up again early and had a lovely breakfast overlooking the sea. The hotel was in a fantastic position with a lovely view of the harbour and the sea.

After breakfast we caught the bus to Pompei. The weather was fantastic with blue sky and lovely sunshine. We arrived at Pompei at 9.00am and spent two hours looking at the ruins of this very famous city. We saw how the people of this city lived nearly two thousand years ago. We saw their houses and shops and looked at some of the paintings that can still be seen today.

Once we had bought some gifts for our family and friends we caught the bus to Naples station. We then  caught the train from Naples to Reggio Calabria. The train journey took four hours. The time soon passed as we played eye spy and other games.

When we arrived at Reggio a bus collected us and took us to our hotel. What a fantastic hotel this is! It has a swimming pool and a very posh restuarant. As soon as we had unpacked we then went to the beach to swim in the sea. The water was crystal clear but very, very, very cold. Mr Mitchell and Miss Sharatt went in with us. After a quick swim in the sea we then went to the swimming pool. This was a little warmer and great fun.

When we had fnished swimming we were all hungry. Dinner was pasta , chicken and chips and some lovely fresh local fruit. We are all now looking forward to tomorrow and spending some time with the Italian children.
