On the way to Pompeii

http://www.nationalgeographic.com/history
We're catching the train out of Florence this morning, for a long weekend excursion to the south of Italy.  We'll have fun in the sun, city tours, and a guided exploration of the ancient ruins of Pompeii.

This mysterious location holds special interest to old master man.  I was able to attend a summer school for "gifted children" sometime around 6th grade and the class project was Pompeii.  Amazing to consider that a civilization was covered in lava and ash and ended up frozen in time.

That's the depth of this trip.  Many layers of life and culture, from alternative geographic locations.  Have to appreciate this opportunity.

I also want to apologize for hijacking this blog and turning it into a travel site.  Truth is, I haven't been running and am eating gelato 2-3 times a day.  Master competitor is getting thick.
