Photos and snarky titles from my life - at work, at home, and abroad.
Photos from Pompeii and the overnight ferry
Pompeii was really interesting. I purposely turned off the wonderful local guide and instead listened to the live recording of Pink Floyd, Live at Pompeii. I had a completely different experience than my first time to Pompeii five years ago, and for sure a different experience than the kids and other chaperones. I felt like an alien on a different planet with all the tourist walking the opposite direction from me and with everyone listening to their own guides and in little clusters. I tried my darndest to keep all signs of humans out of my photos--which was tough. But, a fun and hot day. The overnight ferry was much nicer than I expected. We boarded at about 9pm, dinner later and didn't sleep much at all. The wake up call was a 4:30am, breakfast at 5:30am, disembarking at 6:30am...then the bus for about 7 hours.
