The photos from Pompei are all uploded !!

The pompeian set :-D
Well, finally the photos from Pompei are up, still have Nemi, Rome and Naples to go but all in good time ;-) We had an amazing time in Pompei, the weather was gorgeous, probably around 30 degrees centigrade with a gentle breeze blowing in from the sea. Instead of doing the normal two hour tourist walk we of course went for the full, *climbing up hills, looking into every house and attempting to scale the walls* walk ;-) resaulting in a severe shortening of said Gunnellas feet ;-P But it was amazing!! Was a bit miffed though at how many of the condos were closed to the public and the archaeological digs were completely off limits... I´ll have to return full force having done the proper preparations and do my research into pompeian graffiti, past and present, sometime soon... lets see, perhaps after a phd here with research in Japan I could be a fellow at Berkley and do research in Pompei, blink blink....
Warning though, the last photo has the capability to offend, for those whose curiosity has now been aroused view it full size and aim for the upper right hand corner ;-)
1. Pompeian Columns in the autumn sun.., 2. The road is loooong, with many a winding turn..., 3. There are no words..., 4. love the colours and the artistry, 5. Can anyone read this ;-) ?, 6. Such a bright yellow after two thousand years, 7. Tourists in The Bathhouse, 8. Amazing how much of the artwork is still intact and how elaborate their walls were, 9. Definition of excess archeological artifacts...?, 10. The Pompeian way ;-), 11. A Pompeian column top, 12. A faun in the bathhouse..., 13. A stray dog in royal quarters ;-), 14. Say cheese ;-D, 15. Peekaboo ;-), 16. Minor delusions of grandeour perhaps ;-) ?
