Pompeii was nuuuuuuuuts. It was super cool and I spent a few hours walking around there. Pompeii is an ancient city that was covered in ash from the Mt. Visuvious volcano that erupted back in 74 BCE. The entire city was preserved and was excavated a few hundred years ago, super crazy and essentially you can walk around there and it's just like walking around a 2000 year old city. Pretty crazy stuff. It was very interesting and I took a bunch of photos of course.

In the evening I hung out with people from my hostel again, they rocked. Ally and Kate from England were specifically awesome, and, obviously, they are from Kent. This further proves that I think everyone who comes from Kent is fantastic.
