Pompeii, Sorrento and Postiano

Ciao my friends
Yesterday we took a 4 hour bus ride south, from Rome to Pompeii. The site of Pompeii, the buried village, was mind blowing. The technology the romans had and their obsession with sexually explicit art was educational! Our group pitched in and hired a Pompeii guide, so we were able to make the most of our time there. Then after lunch we travelled another hour south to Sorrento (where we are staying for two nights).
The views in Sorrento are beautiful, in fact the whole of the Amalfi Coast is stunnning. All the houses, hotels and roads cling to the side of cliffs. The roads are incredibly narrow and traffic jams and rock falls are common.
Today we had free time to explore so I caught a bus to Postiano...45 minutes on winding cliffside roads and a stomach full of vodka from the night before was not wise. However I did make it in one piece, but will be catching the ferry back! The sun is blasting down outside so I am trying not to get burnt.
Now I have time Ive downloaded some photos so check them out!
