    The Professor asked a small boy in Italian about the mountain. The boy said it was "Stromboli". So they were thrown out of the active volcano of Stromboli in Italy. In the port of San Vicenzo, the people gave them food, drink and new clothes.
    After resting for two days, they went to Marseilles by boat and took the train to Hamburg.
