Day 6, May 8th, 2012.

Hi, today was Pisa [previously posted] and Florence. More amazing buildings and statues everywhere. We are getting use to living on the Ruby Princess and spoiled by the service. we don't have to clean our room, cook our meals, or do the dishes. Live shows on the ship were great. The food is great. And our little room was just cozy. The people in Italy drive like crazy, horns honking, and close calls everywhere, but no accidents.

Day 7, May 9th, 2012.

Hi, today we went to Rome to see the Colosseum. This is enormous and the work that went into this is...........well I don't have the words to explain it. Who designed it? How was it built? How many bricks were used? How was man able to do something like this? Why has whatever is left of it lasted so long?

Easy Answer to one of the questions..
Whips and more than a sprinkling of Slaves..
After Nero Died Vespasian used thousands of em ..
10 years it took to build..70 ad or thereabouts
Tightass..I mean Titus ..Vespians son The thumb up and
Thumb down Kid on the block..enjoyed the Roman "Games" One could say the bloodiest exhibitions of public entertainment known to Russell Crowe
Love the pictures
Talking about slavery..I'm off to work..

Day 8, May 10th, 2012.

Hi, today we stopped at Naples, Italy. Naples was mostly viewed from the windows of our tour bus. I have a few pictures to show you. View of Naples from mountain road, an early Fiat, a RV and tent camp ground, and a road sign so you don't get lost.


To be continued: On this same day we spent some time in Sorrento and the main attraction was Pompei.

Day 8, May 10th, 2012.

Hi, we stopped in Sorrento for a few hours. This is a very colorful little town. Of course they have to have a statue too. We toured a "wood inlay, furniture factory/store". We walked down the narrow streets and our first stop was at a little store so Lee Lee could buy a Canoli; I bought an ice cream cone. I also bought a few bottles of peach iced tea since I don't drink water. Some of the streets are for pedestrians only; They have many little shops/stores with all kinds of things. We bought some real Italian pasta. For lunch we stopped at a restaurant for a real Italian Pizza. It was sooooo good, like no pizza we ever had. We ate on a balcony, so romantic, as long as you didn't look down. [I didn't look down] The streets are lined with Orange trees. They told us that the oranges tasted terrible, so they use them to make orange marmalade.

Note: to be continued; Pompei.

Day 8, May 10th, 2012.

Hi, now we are at Pompei. This is another ruin. We were told that Pompei was buried in volcanic ashes. People tried to escape, but didn't make it. They have bodys to prove it. [on display] I didn't think you would want to see them, but I did take a few pictures of them. Pompei was a good size, connected, village/town. Their building technique's were quite different as you will see in my pictures. They used marble, huge blocks, rocks, columns, red bricks, and black bricks. The black bricks were not laid flat, but on an angle with the square ends out. Well the pictures will show what I mean, hard to explain. There was also a "red light" house and it was clearly marked. I almost forgot to mention that they also used mosaics and paint.

Day 9, May 11th, 2012.

Hi, today was spent at Sea. No land travels today, but we will stay occupied all day long. So much to do on this ship besides eating great food and we did plenty of that. We had a nice room, live shows to watch, musical entertainment, an outdoor big screen for movies, a 9 hole miniature golf coarse that we can cheat on, an art gallery, a casino, stores, bars, and much more.

Day 10, May 12th, 2012.

Hi, today we stopped at an island called Mykonos, Greece. On this island are nice beaches, windmills, hundreds of chapels, and white buildings. All of the buildings are painted white. Most have blue window trim or shutters, but any color of trim is allowed. They also, may have a rock wall on their house, but it can only be about 25% or less of the total exposed exterior wall. The windmills use small sails instead of wooden blades. In Greece many people have their own private chapels on their property, next to their house. A few of the chapels were about the size of a dog house; Others had room for a few family members to enter. Most of the buildings were kept painted a bright white, only a few looked a bit dingy.

Hi, after touring Mykonos, we walked around in the ship. I saw a mirrored wall in a bar that I thought was interesting, so of course, I took a picture of it. Later we went to the movies. Our ship has a huge [looks like an LED] screen outside on the top deck. There we watched two movies; "Iron Woman" and "The Help". As you relax on the lounge chairs watching your movie of the night, ship employees will bring to you [at no cost] popcorn, pizza, cookies, and milk. Since we just had a large dinner, we only had popcorn and cookies while watching the show. Oh and you don't have to ask for anything, they just carry trays of goodies to everyone watching the movie and ask if you want some. [very hard to say no]

Hey some of these ruins make me feel at home..
rather like walking round the side of our cottage !
Loving the Pictures Bob..I want to see more of you two ..
that sounds wrong..there cant possibly be 2 of you ..
unless..doppelgänger lurking somewhere
What I really mean is ..more of you and more of Lee Lee.
do you feature ?? I keep scanning..I spotted the one of you near the
humongous puddycat
ps..thought the dummies were odd staring tourists..
keep em coming BooBoo !
My sister has been to Pompei a few times..
think shes going back this month..
Only problem..She is vegetarian so is my bro inlaw and their 2 children..
..they had a bit of trouble explaining the true meaning of vegetarian..
the locals idea of a meat free meal was smothered in Pork scratchings ..

Day 11, May 13th, 2012.

Hi, today we are at Istanbul, Turkey. The buildings in Turkey are once again different. They like to decorate with gold, tiles, and paintings. In one of the pictures it looks like the entrance to Disneyland, sort-of. It was a foggy day so I didn't have to wear my hat. Today, as you can see, we are in group "Yellow 4" and our tour guide has the Yellow #4 paddle so we don't get lost. We also have blue radios for listening to our tour guide explaining everything. [to much information to remember] Just take lots of pictures. In the pictures you can see that they like points and domes.
