europe: pompei

Friday, September 3, 1999

It’s been a while since I’ve had time to sit back and journalize. After the 20 hour ferry ride from Paras (past 3 hours from Athens) we took a couple of trains through the night to end up in Sorrento, Italy, at around 7:30am. After napping, we visited Pompei, which is a medieval 2000 year old city that had been buried by the eruption of a nearby volcano. It’s incredibly preserved (for an ancient city at least).
