After a train ride most of the way
up Lucerne’s Mt. Rigi…
…there was still a steep ascent/descent
to attain its summit and return.
In my pre-teen years,
a fireman I never wanted to be,
I wanted to be an archeologist.
So when Pompeii was on our itinerary,
it would have taken a deluge
akin to the one that hit New York this week…
…to stop me from walking around the Pompeii ruins.
