Rome, Day #3 (Trip Day #12)

Day 12/3
So I guess today started at some time in the middle of the night.  Matt stubbed his toe really bad and there was blood everywhere.  He is fine.  Neosporin and Band-Aids.  Then he had stomach problems for the rest of the night, which we cannot account for because we shared everything yesterday and I am fine.  So today had a rough start to say the least.  But we got up and had breakfast and got on the metro and train and headed towards Naples.  Sadly, we didn't do anything there.  On the way in Matt wanted to get to Pompeii (the plan for the day) and on the way back he wanted to get home.  Makes sense, he felt like shit but was a real trooper.  Way better than I was the first night in Israel.  So 2 hours to Naples.  30 minutes to Pompeii.  Attacked (figuratively) but the tourist shops after getting off the metro and walking 100 feet to the entrance of Pompeii.  Stopped for lunch.  Matt had bread.  It was 12:30 and I had not taken a single photo.  Inside Pompeii, I took enough.  We saw the Basilica, the forum, two theaters (one amphitheater) and enough houses.  I didn't know Pompeii was so huge.  And so hot!  We poked around for about 2 hours (same as the Vatican) before Matt was too exhausted to continue.  Not to mention that his contacts had been bothering him since we were on the ATVs.  So halfway through he threw out his contacts and put on his glasses - since he is much happier, well in terms of his eyes.  30 minutes metro. 2 hours train.  Back at the hotel.  Still sweating and happy to be back only to still hate this bed.
