    Herculaneum, Last Refuge from Vesuvius

    November 25, 2013 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    I awoke to a beautiful sunrise over Mt. Vesuvius. An 8 A. M. visit to Dr. Dylan Belton had him removing my IV port, and giving me two more boxes of different antibiotics. At breakfast we had a wonderful conversation with a group of women who are co-workers at the Princess Lodges in Alaska. The doctor said I could go into Herculaneum. Our guide, Giaconda, led us on a wonderful tour, during which the weather turned very cold and windy. At the end of the day quite a few of the excursion groups returned to the ship late. Many of the passengers who left the ship in the morning were unprepared for the cold. At supper I tried to make conversation with John, the horse trainer from England, about horse racing and odds making. Tomorrow, according to Glenda, we begin the “Rome Death March,” an all-day excursion to the Eternal City.Read more
