Hobbie Rollis even wrote a melody, we say wrote, we mean : made up. Venimus vidimus vesuvium ascendimus. Today we reached the crater had a talk from a man who claimed to know about plates etc. & Dr. Stone spoke too. A haze (of heat) hung over the bay but the royal blue T shirt brigade stood proud for a photograph at the heart of where it all began.
All well here, in other words. We had a great tour of Herculaneum in the morning with a living breathing Italian archaeologist, a rapid lunch & then the climb to Vesuvio's summit.
Tomorrow's our Pozzuoli day with a late afternoon date at the Archaeological Museum in the heart of Naples...join us!
