We had two wet days while we were in Europe.
The second one was the day we visited Pompeii.
or not, such was the weather.
However armed with ponchos and umbrellas
we had a relatively dry experience at Pompeii, until…
we were leaving the ruins.
Mother nature decided that we should hurry
to keep dry and down came the rain.
We sheltered under this shade cloth. Yes, shade cloth.
Umbrellas and ponchos still required to stay dry.
After about twenty minutes of solid rain we decided
it had eased enough to make our way back to our coach.
Scenes like this greeted us at every corner
and I must admit to being glad
we had completed our tour
and not just arriving like
many dry fellow travelers, just off their coach.
On the whole we were warm and dry
and not far away from our hotel.
