June 25th-26th

We did have a very lazy day on Sunday. It was really hot in Salerno. Monday was not much cooler, but since we had to hand the rental car back this afternoon, we decided to get up early and drive to Pompei. It did not take long to get there, but the vibe was completely different from most of Italy that we had seen so far on this trip. It was also a very busy day at Pompei and there were thousands of tourists visiting. John and I were a little shell shocked being exposed to some many people at once after being in areas where there were just not that many people. The heat was also oppressive. We spent just an hour going through Pompei, something that should really be done over a period of hours, and left early. We will save Pompei for another day.
