Pompeii

image

Today saw a trip to Pompeii with all that such a visit entails – ruins, history, dust, more scaffolding (see my Galleria Umberto post from yesterday) together with hot sun and a spectacular lightning display as we were leaving. It’s hard to imagine it as the bustling busy place it must have been before the earthquake and eruption changed it forever. In a way it both provides some answers but then leaves so many questions as to what life was like in Italy under Roman rule at that time. My photo today is a typical Pompeiian street scene with Vesuvius continuing to cast its shadow. I’m going to assume that it’s only a cloud I can see to the left of Vesuvius as we intend to climb to the crater later this week……..!
