Pompeii

Overlooking the ruins

Haunting. Tragic. Inspiring. What can anyone write about Pompeii that has not been written before? The Roman city fell victim to the Mount Vesuvius. Mother Nature claimed the city one evening burying the ancient metropolis under levels of deadly ash almost 2000 years ago.

Visiting the site 2 times in August. I admit, Pompeii stirs the imagination. A real peak into the ancient world. 

These are pictures from my first visit.

I am editing the images from my second visit, posted here soon.
