|Marie and Betty, 1934|
In the summer of 1934, my mother Marie DiMeglio, her sister Betty and their father Pasquale traveled to Naples ans Ischia. On July 10, they visited Pompeii. This is what Marie posted to her daily diary, the blog of the past.

"Today is my birthday-18 yrs old. Today we started out early and went by car to Vesuvius and Pompeii. An Australian young man came with us. He was cute. Up Vesuvius, we went in a funiculare and went right up to the top. We could see the fire come right out. Then, we had lunch at Vesuvius. We went to a coral factory and Dad got me a ring and a bracelet, both very pretty. In the afternoon we went to Pompeii and walked and walked thru the ruins. Then we went back to Naples and had supper."
