Over 2,000 years ago, Pompeii was a thriving settlement in an emerging Roman state until a terrible eruption of Mt. Vesuvius buried it in the year 79 A.D. Volcanic debris, flames, and thick clouds of smoke and ash filled the skies on that fateful day; but during our visit, the only thing in the clear blue sky besides wispy white clouds was erratic condensation trails from overhead jets — something the doomed people of early Pompeii would never have seen.

      1. I would imagine it has. I recall reading about their finding some x-rated groupings that weren’t on public view when we went, and no doubt there is more. I’m afraid I stand no chance of getting there again – travel is a no-no for me these days.

  1. I have always wanted to see Pompeii – should our travel bans ever be lifted it’s near the top of my list. Thanks so much for sharing these. Not quite like being there but the next-best thing!
