Pompeii 龐貝古城 (Part I)

Pompeii 龐貝古城

I had read many stories about the history of the ancient city Pompeii.
I was so keen therefore and ecstatic in having the opportunity to visit it.
We were lucky to have a very funny guide and she showed us all the main sights of Pompeii.
We came at the right time because the rain had just stopped and the sun came out
and we were rewarded with blue skies and white clouds.

    If I am not mistaken, the city of Pompeii was destroyed by an earthquake isn't? Very blue skies. My kind of skies! :)

    Is that Mt Vesuvius in Photo No 6?

    A while ago, I watched TV programme from BBC called "10 Things about Volcanoes that you don't know" Mt Vesuvius was one the the 10!

    I remember the music in this post!
    It's called Celtic Dream, right?

    I used to do Irish Dance when I did my undergraduate studies in Scotland! We used to practise Irish Dance with this music.
    Have you heard another one called Siamsa from the same album?
    We used that a lot for our dance club too!

    Go to Youtube to check out the dance about Siamsa. It's fun!!!

  4. I think I will feel so small when I place myself in a thousands year old ancient city.. Amazing heritage!

  5. Pompeii... recall it being like a walk in the past. a city excavated out of ashes - i was lucky to have good weather when i visited too with the fluffy clouds and blue sky. your photos are very sharp!

  9. Thanks Mei Teng,
    Pompeii was destroyed and completely buried during a long catastrophic
    eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius spanning two days in 79 AD.
    I will have a some description about it in the next post!

  10. To London Caller,
    Yes, that's Mt. Vesuvius, a volcano that destroyed the Pompeii city...
    You're right, the song I use is Celtic Dream.
    The Siamsa dance is really funny, very oldie dance...
