that I stopped in at Pompeii The Exhibit?
What I knew two hours before experiencing the exhibit:
Pompeii was a city in Italy that was buried in volcanic ash when Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.
Now ask me what I learned after two hours of viewing actual:
- Household Items including but not limited to furniture, cooking utensils, pottery, painted plaques scales and personal grooming items
- Jewelry crafted in gold for the wealthy, and glass for the less fortunate.
- Currency including a gold coin that was worth 100 asses.
- Visit a bordello bedroom
- View statuary that shows how both Greek & Egyptian culture influenced the art and religious beliefs of the community.
- Walk among the dead – One area of the exhibit displays body casts of actual victims
I also watched three great independent films On Demand. It’s a real treat to be able to watch a film that is currently in or coming soon to theatres from the comfort of my futon.
Oh and on Sunday night I had dinner with the girls at Pisticci - the first restaurant here in New York “to go Green.”
The food was amazing. My salad included goat cheese filled fresh figs and mango. For an entree I chose homemade meatballs and polenta. We three shared tiramisu, coconut cake and a pineapple tart for dessert. Yummeeee.
My company was totally right on too. I love you ladies!
Until next time.
