Day 11 & 12 Marmalade & Pompei!!!

On day 11 we got to see the plates we got to decorate, then we headed to see how marmalade was made. All the fruit was grown on site and used to make marmalade and for cooking. That night we got on another overnight ferry, and we woke up in Naples. On day 12 we started the day off by going to a water park and dancing by the pool. We left the park and had lunch, spaghetti! We then got to see Pompei, we learned that the city of Pompei was built a thousand years ago. When Mt. Vesuvius erupted it covered the city with 24 feet of ash. It was buried for thousands of years and no one knew about it. People were frozen in whatever daily activities they were doing from the intense heat. It reached approximately 500 degrees. Not only people where frozen but animals, bread, cheese, and pottery; were frozen in what ever condition they were in when the volcano erupted. It was the most amazing sight to see this city that existed thousands of year ago, then covered in ash and then found again. Now we are headed to the city of Roma!!!
