garbage and the mafia vs. burrata

Lots of great things about Naples. Pizza, people watching and Pompeii (not far away), to name but a few that all start with the same letter. Then, there are the things not so great about the city: it is a city, and it’s not Toronto (or NY, these days)…it’s not, um, all that clean.

But lately, i guess it’s gotten worse and sadly, this has had a devestating impact on something near and dear to my heart: burrata cheese. OK, a bacterial infection called Brucellosis (no, not Brescianella) also had something to do with this and apparently, the local mafioso isn’t really helping either. You can read all about it here but bottom line: lots of dead cows, less delicious cheese.
