... of plastering) that died during the eruption. They believe they still have 1/3 of Pompeii to excavate. After lunch we went to Vesuvius. We climbed up to the crater.

We arrived in Pompei at about 10 o'clock in the morning. We got there by train. We straight away went to inside. One of the first things we saw were ruined houses and some big ruined building. The building was massive and had all ...
