Gladiators practice ring in Pompeii
Today was the drive to Pompeii to see the ancient ruins.  The guide was intertaining and he told us about the brothels that people went into expecting porn and came out disappointed because it wasn't graphic.  Well, we didn't go in there.  Kate was a little disappointed because she expected to see more plaster cast bodies, and I think we saw 6 or 7 total.  It was crazy, how you could tell how much pain they were in by there facial features (the casts are that distinct) and body poses.  It was neat, very cool.  After that, we waited around for the bus and then took it to Bari, Italy where we caught a ferry to Greece.  Well, I didn't get sea sick (thank god).  Apparently it's the inbetween boats (not small, not big) that make me sick.  We had dinner (I accidently cut in line and some guy got pissed at me), drank some warsteiner at the deck bar and watched the sunset, and then I called it a night to catch up on my journal.  Showering was interesting, and you can't flush toilet paper down the toilets, b/c they have small pipes, so it all goes in the trash..   ewww, well, we woke up at about 4 in the morning to some guys being loud outside and the cabin rattled alot,  but I slept ok.  that's it.
