Day 2 Pompeii 2011

Page history last edited by David Guarnieri 13 years, 3 months ago

After a good night sleep and a hearty breakfast, we had a gorgeous day in Pompeii. Underneath clear blue skies, we learned about the form, function and connection of six major sites in Pompeii including the amphitheater, bar, fullery, bakery, villa and market. The children did an excellent job with their presentations with some providing snacks or skits to liven up their presentations.


We left Pompeii at 1:00 pm and returned to the hotel for lunch before heading out to Boscoreale. Once at the museum, the children looked at different artifacts from Pompeii and other local archeological sites. They really enjoyed this small but fascinating museum. Unfortunately, Villa Regina was closed for renovations but we saw an excellent model of this Roman farm.


As the clouds started to form and the wind whipped up, we had a short play on a soccer pitch with some local children. After 30 minutes the rain started to come down and we sought shelter in our warm bus and made our way back to the hotel. We couldn't pass up a quick gelato near our hotel before coming back for a shower and journal writing.


This evening we will have a read aloud and play bingo before going to dinner. The children are very well behaved and are doing a great job keeping their rooms clean (even without inspections!). They are truly a responsible and respectful group of children.


Only one more day and you will have your child back in your arms. They will be tired but happy to be home!
