I remember, when we first got to Rome, thinking "Wow, the traffic here is worse than Boston." Well, Naples was even worse. The streets were filled with pedestrians, motorcyclists, and cars, all honking and zooming past one another.

|The only way in or out?
And one last photo, also located in the Villa of the Mysteries. A grim reminder of the tragedy which gave us Pompeii as we have it today:
|One of the bodies found in the house.
|Herculaneum. The grassy area is where the beach used to be.
|The view from the beach. The cliff on the left shows how deep the volcanic tufa burying the town was.

|Kristin taking pictures of a shop, which probably sold those jars you see in the upper right.

Lots and lots of pictures like this. Which maybe aren't so interesting to folks who aren't as into ancient Rome.
I was going to finish up Naples in this post, but I'm thinking maybe I can save some of it for later. So I'll wrap things up here for now.
