worth every penny
There are only a handful (literally, like 3 or 4) Sushi restaurants in Naples, and only one of them has a reputation for being good. On Saturday night, I wanted to go there. With Tony. On a date. So we did. We got a babysitter and hopped on the train and went there. Just the two of us. On a date.
We ate raw fish, and I had more wasabi than I've ever dared to try. We talked and sipped chilled white wine. We laughed, and we lost all track of time.
In all our dating bliss, we completely forgot that trains stop running at a certain time in the night. So do buses. We looked at the clock. Looked at the closed train station doors. Laughed some more, and then cried when we realized our only option was to take a taxi all the way home.
You have to understand. Tony and I always find the cheapest way to transport ourselves around cities. We neeeever take taxis. They are waaay too expensive. And so was this one. It had to carry us many kilometers back to our neck of the woods. We cringed. We cried. Swallowed our pride and whispered, "It's all part of the experience," and paid the taxi driver 40 Euro. Yikes.
Then we laughed again, because it was, of course, worth every penny.
