Naples (Italy).

Twenty-two years ago. The country called Italy has not been born yet. Naples, now the largest city in Italy, was then just a city-state. He decided to build a summer lodge on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, not far from the city of Naples. In the scorching heat of summer, it is comfortable to stay on the high slopes of the mountains to enjoy the cool breeze that blows from the Mediterranean Sea. However, the problem is that the water supply system in the mountains is quite complicated. So, a team of royal engineers was sent to search for water. The search began. Marble came out while digging for water; First one or two pieces, then more. Tonak Nadal Engineers. Marble is not supposed to come here! But?

 

 

 

 

Excluding water, another quest begins, and that is the story of a catastrophic event even before the birth of the real Jesus Christ, which people have forgotten over time.
.
About seven hundred years after the birth of Christ, that is, about twenty-seven hundred years before today, a small port in the Mediterranean Sea was founded by a city called Pompeii. With the development of ancient Greek civilization, the popularity of Pompeii gradually spread around as a business-safe port city. Naturally comes economic development. Within a few hundred years, Pompeii was established as one of the most prosperous city-states in the region. Later, as the Roman Empire developed, Pompeii came under Roman rule. Modern sewerage system, paved roads for people and horse-drawn carriages, shops-business centers, amphitheaters for recreation, large civic bathrooms with hot water steam baths, free potable water at street corners, gym-gymnasium, justice and administrative system. The ancient city had all the facilities and arrangements of a modern city. What a wonderful life the people of Pompeii!

But who knew they were actually living at the very feet of a huge risk of certain destruction! The whole city was at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. Mount Vesuvius, about 6,000 feet high, is actually a living volcano. Sometimes Vesuvius would shake off a couple of shocks to show its vitality, although the people of Pompeii, who are busy with prosperity, would not take that shock seriously, just as we Dhakaites have not paid attention to the earthquakes that have shaken us for many years.
.
Finally, on August 24, 69 BCE, twenty-one hundred years ago today, Mount Vesuvius erupted into a monstrous atrocity. About eight thousand feet high, Vesuvius came out of his stomach with a pile of burning gas and stones! The magnitude of the explosion was thousands of times greater than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima-Nagasaki! By the power of which stones and gas rose from the belly of Vesuvius to about 33 kilometers above the sky! Think !! Then began the current of burning lava. Rocks, ashes and thousands of degrees centigrade lava sank the whole ‘Pompeii’ city – its people-animals-plants, civilization-prosperity, economy-culture everything. The lava pressed as it was then turned to stone for eternity in a cruel way. The epicenter was reported below the ground, however; no tsunami alert was issued. The epicenter was reported below the ground, however; no tsunami alert was issued. The epicenter was reported below the ground, however; no tsunami alert was issued. Then when that piece of hell stopped, there was nothing left.

Some ships sailing across distant seas reported the eruption to Rome. The Romans sent two legions to search for them. After crossing the road for about a month, a group of soldiers came and saw where Pompeii was, where what! There is no name smell of anything. Even according to the map, where the sea is supposed to be, the sea is about a few kilometers away! And 6,000 feet of Vesuvius has become just like 4,000 feet; In other words, about half of the mountain has melted with the eruption!
.
Since then the city of Pompeii has been lost for almost two thousand years until a team of engineers from the emperor of Naples went in search of water and found the city again! The existence of the whole city is gradually turned into a myth as if it were a fantasy; There was no city with this name in reality!
.
This time while planning the Italy tour, the plan was to go to Pompeii. Purchase a day trip package from TripAdvisor and start your journey from Rome at dawn according to the tour plan. Only two and a half hours on the tour bus. At first I climbed to the top of that terrible Vesuvius. You can get up by bus for a long distance, the rest on foot up the hill slope. There is no doubt that it is very difficult to climb the mountain, but after the ascent, the intense blue Mediterranean Sea on the horizon and the whole city of Naples formed in its lap forget the difficulty of climbing. The funny thing is Vesuvius but still alive! Smoke is still coming out of the crater! On the way up the molten lava turned cold and turned into a new stone fair! How many colors, how many kinds!

From there I got down and entered the town of ‘Pompeii’. In fact, it should be said that in the last one and a half years, as much as Pompeii has been dug out. That’s why my eye can be called charakagacha! Roads, ghats, shops, houses, cisterns, schools, city centers  everything is made of stone, but none of them have a roof; Because it was not possible for the roofs to carry tons of ash and lava. There are parking lots outside the shops, and there is rainwater harvesting and storage in the homes

Arrangement, steam bath arrangement for the elite of the city !!! Glass-Plate-Pipes-Pots-Pots-Furniture and many other useful things! And there are people who have become stones under the lava later in life, animal statues! An incredible feeling of thorns! You can see the whole album here http://bit.ly/2ybdI8r

I walked in the alleys of the city for about three hours. Perfect description of the ear guide. Time seems to have stopped here two thousand years ago. As if nothing was a little old. Finally, when the evening light spread, our small group of tourists of different ages from different countries got on the bus again – this time on the way back to Rome. The bus was moving at its own pace on the smooth highways of Italy; In the distance are the shadows of the mountains and the fields of grapes, corn and wheat on the way. Walking up the hill all day, tired eyes were fading and images of Pompeii’s last moments were floating in the imagination! How did the people feel when a stream of burning lava flowed down Vesuvius towards the city? How could every mother in the city want to save her darling child by holding him close to her chest! No matter how hard each father tried to move his family away safely! How many lovers wanted to be close until the last moment by embracing their beloved tightly! How many prayers, how many petitions and how many heartbreaking cries …… ..everything was crushed and went under billions of tons of cruel molten stones and gray ashes! Eat! Eat!
