Pompeii

Back to my travels and our visit to Pompeii when we docked in Naples on June 19th.

It is so incredible that after surviving the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A. D. so much of it is still around and preserved for us to see.  Here are some photos of my visit to Pompeii.

The baths of Pompei in terrific shape considering they were buried under 6 meters of pumice and ash.

This is Frederick.  I am in Rome and today we walked up to the Spanish Steps, climbed them to the Villa Borghese, walked through the park down to the Da Vinci Museum on Piazza de Popolo where we had lunch.  More on all that later.
