Ruins, Pompeii

The overgrown ruins of Pompeii stretch into the horizon, providing a glimpse into the flourishing urban life of its citizens before the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius. The volcano has erupted 80 times since unleashing colossal destruction in A.D. 79 but has remained mercifully quiet since 1944.

    1. Its a really cool place. Even going to go see the porno house. There are pictures above the doors of each room descibing what went on inside. To actually find your way to it is to just look at the roads in the city. There are road tiles that are erotic parts pointing the way.

    2. @mykyl: What do they depict to point the way, WINK WINK? But in all seriousness, I’d like to visit Pompeii.

    3. Romans regularly had what we’d think of as porn in most public buildings. It certainly was not out of site of the kiddies.

    4. Roman Pagans loved the orgy sex. If you loved the orgy sex, you were in. I want to visit Italy so bad! Especially after this Ancient Art class I am taking. Plus I have ancestors from Sicily and Calabria. The food!

      Pompeii is insane. In an instant, life is frozen in time.

    6. Anyone else ever want to go exploring old ruins and abandoned cities/buildings? I think it’s the only reason I ever admired Indiana Jones.

    7. @CathyLong:
      Hear hear. Here where I live there are a lot of woods and many many old ruins and the like. I’ve actually done it many times. With friends and alcohol, that is. Never for more than 2 weeks though.
      As long as it doesn’t turn into a Blair Witch trip, it’s fun as hell.
