I.A Pompeii In Pictures

A rich ancient city
near Naples,
bustling with trade,
money and art.

But Mt. Vesuvius
was letting her power
known by quaking,
tremors,clouds of ash,
stone and volcanic ash.
Some people started
fleeing leaving their
villas, valuables and
businesses.

The eruption commenced.
Thick layers of ash
covered the town. Towns
and streets, their names
and locations now
forgotten.

Then, the digging began.
Excavation of human
and animal remains and
Pompeiian villas were
discovered. Certainly,
many were stubborn to
leave their material
riches behind. Well,
they were found in their
original position covered
in ash with valuables in
their hands fleeing to
find safety but it was
too late.

# This used to be a villa. In the middle of the 4 columns was a pool.

Note: My husband and I love to travel together. He does ALL arrangements and I just tag along although I spend more money in souvenirs. Can’t replace a memory. Fortunate to see this World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

There’ll be more about Pompeii in the next blogs to come.
