I’ve wanted to visit Pompeii since I was about 10 years old – volcanoes, destruction, death, buried alive! all those things that (most) boys find exciting.
Now that I’ve been there — it’s still got some powerful allur to it. I want to go back already. Walk around the empty streets, poke my head into the empty houses … imagine what it was like to live in such a famous town.
I’ll have to just go along to the Tate Britain for now and stare at this rather weird picture. Full of doom and sense of natural power.
