«Одна из улиц Помпей» на Яндекс.Фотках
On the photo you see here is one of the streets of Pompei. I wanted only you look at the board stones of the street. The sidewalks there are about half a meter higher as the road surfaces. When I came for the first time in Pompei I could not understand why.
This morning we had the first rain after sommer heat. The storm was terrible with spectacular lightnings. Do you remember when all the new asphalt cloth of our street was drag away with the first rain a year ago? See my post "Rain In Campania". What a pitty I did not make the photos of the completely distructed road.
On the last photo an other interesting thing. The blots on the photo are the rain drops. And it's their real size. They are not a little normal drops of rain, but cups of water.
Ancient Romans built their towns very clever. If I have to go somewhere when rains, I can't do it without a car.
Read here Basja Is Afraid Of A Storm how one of our cats found the best place to hide herself from the rain.
