Now I know I have been MIA this week, but it has kicked my butt massively. I started English Language Arts tutoring for the iLeap this week, the LSU game kept me up too late, and duty on top of tutoring is tiring, and I am just slap wore out for no good reason at all. So consider this my apology for a 7 day break from blogging, I just didn't have it in me :)
Now back to the Italy trip.
We left off day 3 arriving back in Pompeii to bad weather. Hence those fashionable plastic ponchos below. Tickets for this weren't bad at all, but when you consider that we had paid for tickets already with our group and had to buy them again since we did this spur of the moment without our group leader knowing we had left Napoli we ended up paying 22 euros for an 11 euro ticket. Not to mention the train ride we paid for that was probably already paid for. All of that was so worth it considering we had until 9pm to arrive back in Napoli before the train strike went into effect and we would be unable to leave Pompeii or arrive back there for 24 hours.
Most of this post and the next will be pictures and just a few explanations about what the picture are. And there are a lot of pictures of Pompeii.
In the documentary I watch they discussed how they had found the bones of several people who had chosen to hide in a "safe room", many had on so much jewelry that their bones were green. But one woman was found to be pregnant, they know this because of the small pelvis found within her pelvis. Can you imagine being those people?
Tomorrow we will finish up Pompeii with a ton more pictures. And maybe a bit more history. If you have missed any posts you can click on the Italy label below and see all of the posts.
