Two days ago, we took the train into Pompeii. It was breathtaking. I had no idea how large the city would be. It felt so strange to walk the same streets on the same stepping stones that this ancient civilization did 2,000 years ago.
There were a few parts that made me cry…like seeing the casts of the bodies that were buried beneath the rubble after Mount Vesuvius blew. I couldn’t bring myself to take a photo, because it seemed like such an invasion.
It was very cool to walk into the amphitheater where the gladiators fought. The whole place is just completely unbelievable.
