Naples/Pompeii

Pompeii is just outside of Naples (where we spent most of our day)












Archeologists preserved the bodies of the victims with plaster, creating casts of the bodies that looked exactly as the person had when they died, right down to their facial expressions and the details on their clothing.




(there are stray dogs/cats at all of the ruins in Italy and Greece)

  3. Ahhh! I went to Pompeii. So crazy that they were able to preserve so much..

    Did you get to see the brothel in Pompeii?

    Also, it's so strange that there are dogs at all ruins....my friends and I noticed that too!

    And I just want to adopt that poor Pompeiian puppy - too cute.
