Pictures from Pompeii
I was in Rome last weekend for my winter break, and I took a day trip down to Pompeii. I have a bunch of pictures to share. Right now they have all been unceremoniously dumped here. Further details will have to wait until tomorrow, because it's really late my time, and I ought to be in bed. The picture on the left is me crossing the street. The sidewalks are raised about a foot above the road. At intersections, there are a series of stepping stones, which allow pedestrians to cross without touching the street, spaced in such a way that the wheels of a cart can still fit around the cross walk.
As a further note, links to pictures on my older posts are now almost assuredly all broken. This is because I have finally enacted a much needed re-organization of my photo bucket. I do intend to go back and fix the now broken links, but it will take a while because there is only one of me and there are so very many of them. The good news is that this re-organization has allowed me to see just how much I haven't shared yet. It turns out that I've been selfishly sitting on quite a lot of pretty pictures. Expect to see lots of them in the coming weeks.
