Vesuvius is done!
Climbed Mount Vesuvius yesterday. It is steep but not long. We got to walk around the crater and see inside. There is still steam coming out of it. Next time it erupts, people should get up to 72 hours notice because of the sensors around it. The climb was followed by a tour of Pompeii that was buried in ash by Vesuvius in 79 AD. The workmanship in the city is incredible, right down to a red light district. Pictures will be posted when we get back.
