The Blue Sita Bus pulled into Positano sometime in mid-afternoon and stopped in front of the Bar International. I hopped off the bus and got my bags and headed into the bar to use the bathroom, throw some water on my face, and get a small bite to eat. I got a Prosciutto & Provala Panino and a glass of fresh OJ, sat down and relaxed, before heading down to the Villa Maria Antonietta. It was a good long walk down many stairs and through alleyways as I navigated further down to the lower part of town towards the sea. I was lugging two large suitcases, and the going wasn’t that easy, except that I was a strong young man of just 23, and so it really wasn’t a problem. Nowadays at nearly 60, the same trip would be significantly harder, but I could still do it. Anyway, I finally made it to the spot somewhere near the area called Mulini and asked someone for directions. A man told me exactly where the little pensione was, and so I headed over. It wasn’t far at all, and in no time flat, there I was at Villa Maria Antonietta.
