75,000 babies are born in the region of Campania every year.
I stopped in Gambrinus for what everyone said was the best coffee in the world.
I stood in front of the counter and waited for that famous cup of coffee.
You know those scenes where the spotlight is on a person and despite the 50 people surrounding that person only that bubble exists?
I was in the bubble.
The man behind the bar placed the cup of espresso on the counter.
I picked it up and almost dropped it directly on the floor.
I barely managed to place it back on the saucer.
They serve espresso in burning hot cups.
I waited a minute.
Then, I drank the espresso.
One of those carpe diem things.
One of those memories you make, that you keep.
