The House of the Golden Bracelet


MrM and I have invitations
to the opening of the
Pompeii exhibition
at the British Museum tonight!


I am beside myself with excitement.
Look at this beautiful fresco...
Magpies! Blackbirds!
I can't wait.

  4. Still trying to figure out if this is essentially the same exhibition I saw in Washington:

  10. And i wonder if it's essentiLly the same exhibition i saw in Melbourne a couple of years ago? If so, it too was fabulous, and my classics lecturer was one of the principal curators, even lending much of his personal collection to the museum for the exhibition.

    I hope it was wonderful.
