for those of you who don't know,
classical studies is one of my majors.
so, really ancient things are extremely exciting to me.
hence, pompeii (:
i would like to start out by saying that when we first got there early in the morning,
it was pouring rain for the first two hours.
and i forgot any umbrealla.
so i tried to cover my head with my scarf... which you can see was very effective.
first view of the town
one of my few successful photos during the rain
the little theatre
this seemed like a mini version of
where the town used to do laundry
in the amphitheater!
the acoustics were amazing, naturally
finally! the rain stopped and the sun came out to play
in the brothel.
i have many photos from this,
but they are actually very inappropriate.
let's just say that the pompeiins...
pompeiin fast food
(it wasn't common to cook in their tiny houses
so they'd go to easy food stores, which would have
ready-to-eat things in those holes)
just a small glimpse of
the remains preserved by the ashes
the forum with vesuvius in the back
one of the most interesting archaeological sites i've ever been to!
