Did I mention…

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.

You’ll also:

  • 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.

Vidal Sassoon The Movie

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.
