|Frescos on the walls of a wealthy citizens house. Frescos are made by mixing colors into wet plaster. They are incredibly beautiful even after thousands of years.||Don't know what is but it kept it's brilliant blue color for thousands of years! (The arch thingy in the center of the picture way in the back)||Another street scene in the ancient city Pompeii. Note the stepping stones that periodically cross the street. When it rained raw sewage flowed through the streets, and no one wanted to walk in it. They placed stepping stones across the streets so one could cross the street without stepping in the sewage.|
|Don't know what this is but it's a cool shot. One of the bummers of being on a "high speed" tour...so many things to wonder about...||See the hole in the center of the step in front of the door? The hole in the stone door step is for tying up your horse!||Flour Mill in one of the
many bakeries. It's incredible to me what people were able
to do with rocks in those days.
Here is a granite block...I'd like a flour mill please...when can I pick it up?
