Place: Pisa, Italy
Weather: good - clear

Left Sorrento early in AM and headed to Pompeii. This was unbelievable - Beautiful city that was completely covered by eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Went to Cameo Factory at foot of mountain where cameos are made. Then had a very long drive on to Pisa. The country was beautiful. The Appies Mountains were beautiful with Mediterranean Sea on other side and mountains on other.

When we arrived in Pisa, we had the loudest hotel so far. Boy! Shared bath with Mother and Dad and our room was so small. Patty is a lot of fun to be with though so wasn’t too bad. We have a lot of fun together. Bells rang all night and woke me up. I think we were right under a bell tower!

Pompeii, Italy, the city that was dug from the silt and dust of Mount Vesuvius eruption about AD 79. Nell has back to camera at far left.

On leaving Pompeii we realized we had not taken a picture of Vesuvius. So, from the bus, here is the killer mountain.
