Have you been to NAPLES – ITALY..? “part 1”

Naples, Napoli in Italian, is the third most-populated city in Italy and the biggest city in Southern Italy.

Its name comes from the Greek Neapolis meaning new city. I love the craziness which blends  with  Merriment..

“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty  — it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.”
―    Mother Teresa,


P1010481 Mering came up with a brilliant idea once every year in November  with the candle light shopping.  This takes place at the center of Mering.  As crazy as it may sound… It is very romantic and somehow very cozy. That’s the only time.. you can shop in a comfortable atmosphere.. without feeling the effect of shopping.. Smile



It’s warm spell.. plays an awesome effect on you..Every shop beaming with beautiful candles, torches outside.  Giving you this cozy  atmosphere of being pampered. Some sort of intimate moment  with the buyers and vendors, as well as visitors..



The aroma of food in the air.. children’s laughter, music, as lovers go by hand in hand.. Excellent, brilliant idea… and very entertaining as well… MAGICAL.. I must say… you have to be here to feel this spell…See you next year..



Bis bald..Smile
