Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius

3 years ago

 Pompeii was so incredible.I was not expecting to see so much of the city preserved. 

Floors, ceiling, tiles.

But I was not expecting to learn that Pompeii had 40 brothels.  

And the cost of a prostitute would run you the cost of two glasses of wine. 

On the walls of these brothels there were quite interesting paintings.

Quite fascinating. 








Mt. Vesuvius is the ultimate physical test.  

It basically feels like walking on soft sand up a steep hill.  

On top of that the weather is freezing.

Also with the volcanic rocks you get really filthy.
