  On the buses, hard to believe it's a two way road!

Favorite thing: There's a corner you'll get to know at Positano. Locals call it the "International Bar" for there is an establishment of that name there.
It happens to be adjacent to the main bus stop for Positano and every morning traffic officials turn up for the daily tourist coach run, i.e. when the buses arrive for the trip to Amalfi.
It's quite a circus. You can easily tell the old timers, they negotiate the tight bend without stopping. Some newcomers have to back and fill and you can see they are unnerved by the insanity of the whole thing. It's amazing to watch as minute after minute more coaches ply by on this road fit for one lane traffic yet harbouring two.
No-one who comes here ever forgets the bus trip to Amalfi, it's the stuff of legend. At certain points the drivers fold back their rear vision mirrors as there is so little room to pass.
