Naples was a surprise favourite place to visit in 2012, so I am starting the new year by going back to show you some more of this incredible place.
I found more interesting faces in Napoli than anywhere I have been. Choosing the best has not been easy. Here goes.
These 2 are in the Gesu Nuova church. The faces below are on the facades of buildings in Spaccanapoli.
Napoli is famous for its Nativity scenes. As well as these and the religious figurines, there is a never ending supply of figurines of famous people. You can buy just about anyone.
I think they made him look a bit girly.
They were pretty quick off the mark. When I was there Carla Bruni had just given birth to a baby girl.
Obama had been updated as well. Apparently he used to come with a sign saying “I’m tall, handsome, young and have a good tan.”
Michelle was not left out.
Some of the faces represented are not famous, but they are interesting just the same.
For the next few faces it is back to church. This time it is the lovely church of Santa Chiara.
These are high and mighty in Piazza Plebiscito.
Here are some I met on the street.
2 happy fishmongers setting up for the day.
Meet Gianni, one of the army of chaps carrying covered trays of precious coffee to those shopkeepers too busy to dash out for their fix.
I will leave the last word to Shirley. Have a wonderful 2012!!!
