September 29, 2015. The scale of the city - and therefore the devastation - is astonishing. There are stadia, amplitheatres, shops, homes, streets on streets on streets - and people, still caught in the moment their last breath was choked with ash. This is just one minor part of Pompeii, with Vesuvius in the background. It has been an incredible day, but a difficult one - one of my bad teeth has made my life miserable all day. Not as miserable as that day in A.D. 79 - but you know, everthing is perspective. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1h85EfJ
