Flotsam And Jetsam

     Allow me to introduce you to a couple of sailors who have sailed the sea, to ports exotic, and others, well not so much. Their recent “Med Cruise” had stops, (Ports of Call) in some of the most notorious ports that the Mediterranean  has to offer.

     The adventures of Petty Officers Flotsam and Jetsam will be related to you as they are sporadically able to remember them and then relay them to me.. This first one is from their first visit (of three) to Naples, Italy home of the original Neapolitan style pizza. I hope you will enjoy sharing the boys culinary adventure.

     Have a great weekend,

Port Of Call: Naples, Italy

The sailors had a pizza in mind

but they just couldn’t find,

an original taste of that staple.


Though they had searched high and low

they found no Domino’s,

in the entire city of Naples.
