Great photo.It is sobering to think of the sheer power of Vesuvius

I know, Pompeii is both breathtakingly beautiful and sad at the same time, many escaped but so many perished too, animals included ( I have one of a dog), its unfortunate that the people thought they were lucky to live near Vesuvius. Thanks for enjoying the picture and for dropping by:)

Looks like "he" is praying...

I think he might of been Dora, such a shame:'( nothing can protect you from that, however he is now immortal in some way or other, pity they cannot reconstruct him, it would be interesting to see what he looked like.
