The Entrance to Pompeii

Zoom to the large size to see the details on the tiles…

The Eyes of Mother Teresa

This is a gift from the people of India to the People of Rome. It’s a HUGE statue of Mother Theresa that is kind of hidden away in front of a church somewhere between the Circus Maximus and the Baths of Caracalla.

Morning Seagull over Vesuvius

I woke up early this morning and saw this out of my window, so I went across the street to get a picture.

The Market of Pompeii

This is from the interior area of the market in Pompeii, where it was about 100 degrees when I took this picture. I was hoping for a bit of volcano action to cool me off some… all those old walls kept out all of the wind, so it was about 15 seconds before I was covered in sweat.

Gesu Nuovo

Here is the intricate and delicate interior of the Gesu Nuovo. I recommend the large version of this one to see the details.

On top of Castle Nuovo

This is Valerio’s wife, Elise, who was barely holding on to her hat while the three of us took pics.

Life is short, so she laughed in Naples

Italian Beach on a Sunday

Valpopando, Joepomata, and I went out on a boat today to grab some pictures of Posillipo. Once their wives saw the size of our boat, they decided to head back to Valp’s place early to make us lunch.

We had a great day… the weather was perfect and we had crystal clear views of Vesuvius, Capri, and the entire Amalfi coast.

Behind the kayak, where I am sure you overlooked the pilot, you can see a three story ancient Roman Ruins. They are called the “Palazzo degli Spiriti”, the palace of the spirits, because of the mysterious appearance. The first floor, as you can see, has sunk underwater… it’s now filled with kids that use it for a diving board into the Bay of Naples.

Pompeii Fertile Garden under the Shadow of Vesuvius

This is a view from the top of the Pompeii colosseum back towards Vesuvius. You can see the ancient Pompeii walls running down one of the vias and the partially-exploded crater of Vesuvius in the distance.

The Amalfi Coast by Night

After Pompeii, we visited Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast for dinner. We stopped in an incredibly dangerous cliffside by speeding drunk Italians to take this picture.
