So many Forums in Pompeii, There is so much I can write about this picture and Pompeii, However what was going through my head during this moment of photograph was the amazing location and scenery of this town prior to its eruption by Mt. Versuvius in 79 A.D , And that Pompeii and Herculaneum I visited today was not where the rich and famous Romans that we read in history books lived, but rather the average people both slaves and free hidden from history lived here. It was beautiful and real and an honor to walk with in history that day.
