How did I somehow find myself on the top of Mount Vesuvius this morning?
My trip of a lifetime took a strange turn in the hours before it was scheduled to begin. when the life of my traveling companion was suddenly in danger.
With five days left to go, I am blogging the madness into what I hope is a cohesive narrative as the vision of what this trip means becomes more clear. The story begins here. You can follow via email or Google.
