Jul 10th 2012 8:06PM So, so true. We were at the Roman Forum last year and watched a lady take a video of the scene with her iPad and then, I kid you not, sit down and watch the video! I did not see her once actually look at the scene around her with her own eyes ...
May 21st 2012 7:06PM ... and if you want to make an Aussie angry, use a photo of an opossum in a story about possums! :)
Our predecessors really have a lot to answer for, possums in NZ, cane toads, rabbits, foxes and camels in Aus - introducing animals to a country is never a good idea!
Apr 26th 2012 7:20PM I remember wondering the same thing as we stood, looking at the ridiculous lunch time crowd gathered outside. We had passed so many places on the way up there from the dock, we could see at least half a dozen pizzerias just from where we stood ... was this place really worth the 3hr wait? (Much better idea to get there early, unfortunately we had issues at our accommodation that delayed our plans by a couple of hours). Surely one of the other places would be just fine. BUT oh my goodness, we had two mouthwateringly delicious pizzas and in the end it was definitely worth the wait. The fact that so many of the people waiting with us were locals spoke volumes.
P.S. I'm curious to know what your wife thought of Pompeii, we were quite disappointed ...
