Pompeii, April, 2007
This was our second trip to Pompeii. The first time we were here we took a train to Naples from Rome and then got a local train to Pompeii. It was in February and very few people were visiting. This time we drove from the Amalfi coast. Many parts of Pompeii were crowded with tourists. I had forgotten how far Mount Vesuvius was from Pompeii. In several of the images Vesuvius can be seen in the background. One can get a sense of the force of the eruption by seeing the distance the volcanic ash traveled. From 79 AD until 1748 Pompeii was buried under volcanic ash.
