Neapolitan donuts and wedding dresses.

By chance, we discovered some amazing donuts on a street in Naples that is FILLED with wedding dress boutiques. S was dismayed by all the wedding things, but I enjoyed looking at the dresses as we walked by. The donut, however, was the highlight by far.* It became the most talked about donut we have ever eaten, and I even went back two more times to get more of them later in the trip. The were only $.30 Euros, and they were amazing. Better than the similar looking donuts in other places of town.

Italians seem to enjoy weddings, judging from this street that brought to mind St-Hubert in Montréal. During our trip we even saw several couples in wedding apparel having pictures made and one wedding in process in a cathedral in Sorrento.

While returning to Via Duomo for more donuts, I saw this couple who picked up a wedding dress on a moped.

*After we got home that day, we used this photo and Google maps and street view to find the street where we had found the donut. We returned back to find the exact shop, but couldn't find it because they were closed on Sunday. I later went back (twice) and found the place. Yum.
