Bob Fraser and Dorothy Powell recently traveled to the Mediterranean on an extended cruise.  Dorothy will be sharing about Pompeii and Bob about Olympia Greece (amongst other interesting locations).  This night Bob and Dorothy will share their  perspectives on the awe of Pompeii being buried for centuries under the ash from Mt. Vesuvius   Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area (e.g. at Boscoreale, Stabiae), was buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Many of the inhabitants were also buried before they could escape.

Bob will also share his insights to Olympia Greece, which has no Tugboat Annie or Olympia Oyster House.  But it is famous for the nearby archaeological site of the same name, which was a major Panhellenic religious sanctuary of ancient Greece, where the ancient Olympic Games were held.  The Olympic Games were held every four years throughout Classical antiquity, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD.

If you have the travel bug and were not able to go to these locations, then you will want to hear what Bob and Dorothy have to tell us.
