Jessica and the island of Ischia

Passing the island of Procida going to Ischia, the Abbey of San Michele

Boats in Ischia's harbor with a view of the castle

View of Ischia from the top of the castle

Jessica at the top of the castle

Jessica pretending to be a dead nun. In the 1700s, the nuns of the convent in the castle put the bodies of the dead sisters on these chairs where the bodily fluids drained and they were left to decompose. Later the bones were collected, dried & buried all together. Gory, but true.
