Pompei

Outrora uma antiga cidade do Império Romano (situada a 22 kms de Nápoles, Itália), Pompeia foi completamente destruída pelas cinzas resultantes duma grande erupção do vulcão Vesúvio em 79 d.C.. Manteve-se oculta por 1600 anos antes de ser reencontrada por acaso.

Good morning and thank you for your comment !
I believe, your trip by felucca was a great experience.My husband and son were two years ago in Egypt seeing places, where tourists do not usually get. The journey was guided by Finnish architect, who has connections with right people.Husband and son were thrilled :)
I have been in Rome two times and once also in Pompei. I remember exactly same places, which I can see from your photos. It was fine and awful in same time to see those signs of a big catastrophe.

I finished all other my blogs except my Aminus pages.

La tragica historia que le dio ese reconocimiento a Pompeya.

El Vesuvio mostro que la naturaleza arrebata lo que reclama como suyo.

Saludos.
