Peaceful Capri

The island of Capri,  in the Bay of Naples, has been appreciated for at least 2000 years.  Emperors Augustus and Tiberius both had homes here, Odysseus sailed past  Capri in Homer’s “Odyssey”  and has attracted ‘modern’ tourists for at least 3 centuries now.  The origins of Capri’s name are unknown but the everal have been suggested: Latin capra “she-goat,” Greek kapros “boar,” Etruscan capra “burial place” . This exceptionally beautiful island is best known for its dramatic coastal scenery. It is one of those  places that will forever stay in your memories, and make you wish you could come again.

Capri is the name of the island but it is actually divided into two sections. The eastern section takes the name of the island and the western part is called Anacapri.

Romantic and peaceful, in spite of the visiting crowds

A child asked his father, “How were people born?” His father answered: “Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on.” The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, “We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now.” The child ran back to his father and said, “You lied to me!” His father replied, “No son, your mom was talking about her side of the family.”
