It was practically the first time in 13 years that I swam in the center of Salerno. Once I did it and the water was not healthy, so I had bad sores after this bath. This spring they spoke much about new cleaners and they sad the water in the town is good. So I wanted to try today.
From the time of Longobards and maybe earlier the town was built thinking about those who wll come here from sea. And it is so today, you can understand it looking on this photo.
The old center, where our museum is situated too, is just behind the row of the first houses and the sea "touched" this first row till '54 when the seafront was built with the detrits of the flood. So, now there is this splendid promenade and the little free sandy beach for residents.
The boys saw me taking photos and began to show what they are able to do in the water...
