Positano and Amalfi

We visited both Positano and Amalfi as part of our boat trip today.  Both of these small villages are perched on the cliff similar to Cinque Terre towns.  We took a boat from Amalfi to Positano, hang around there for a bit then a boat back to Amalfi.  From Amalfi we took, what can only be described, as  the craziest bus ride up the hill to the village where we are staying.  The bus drivers essentially lays on the horn around every turn which is about every 50m or so.  All cars either get out-of-the-way or stop and back up to make room.  Only one hand is used to drive the bus, the other hand the bus driver uses to fold the mirror so he can squeeze in between rocks, cars, or another bus.  It is 36C outside, the bus is packed, the driver is wearing a shit and a tie and he does not even break a sweat.  Insanity ensues.
