I live half an hour from Pompei… but had never visited the site. I know, I know… R is worse than me though – he has lived here all his life and had never been! It turns out that he had not appreciated exactly HOW important the site was… and although I was less surprised by it, I was amazed at the sheer size of the place – it is enormous! Enormous, and eerily beautiful. Obviously, we took lots of photos… which speak for themselves.
With love, from Italy
