Pompei
19th June 2008

Arriving in the 'new' town of Pompei, the traffic was dreadful and we just wanted to get off the roads asap. We ended up in a nice hotel but the grouchiest hoteliers possible. Still, it didn't spoil the stay.

The next morning we discovered that we were just an amble away from the ruins (Scavi) of Pompei but at he wrong end. Bugger.

The heat was intense but when we got to the entrance we found out that teachers and under 25s got cheap entry. Andy was offically a child and able to justify some of his behaviour. We didn't want to hand over our passports for an audio commentary so we made our own way around the huge site.

Aaaarrrh! Tourists everywhere.

Iced drinks were vital. The colour was optional.


The first brothel any of us will admit to entering. Paul takes up the postion.

Ben & Lyn apparently deep in thought about all the naked Pompeians that would have frequented these baths

Ultimately, Pompei is disapponting because almost all the artifacts have been removed to Naples museum. There are few information boards as you walk around, so you need to either hire a guide or an audio kit to get a good understanding of the site.
