    Pompeii




    Certainly an unexpected highlight of the trip for me. I wasn't expecting much but what I've learned is that it was a vibrant city and is almost a snapshot in time regarding preservation.

    Fresco inside house.


    Didn't realize they had an amphitheater.

    Entryway artwork. I got a sense of a simple joy from this city. First picture was taken from an elevated scaffold. Second picture was taken through glass as they were trying to limit exposure of foot traffic of the artwork.

    The tiled dog had a profound impact on me. It wasn't just a page in a history book any more. It's hard to explain but I saw more than facts, I saw human feelings and emotion. I saw a family with a well-loved little playful dog that liked to greet neighbors. I felt like I was a visitor in their doorway. The family that lived there wasn't so much different than a family today. Really narrowed the gap of time. I don't remember being moved in that way by history.

    The coliseum was like that as well. We'll get there eventually.

    I'm a bit Jelly. We originally planned on taking a day trip from Rome to Pompeii, but had to cut it while we were there due to unplanned time constraints.

    Well, it was a small one ...







    I put up something on the Music Thread one or two of you might find interesting, about the first concert at Pompeii's amphitheater since 79 A.D.
