It's an amazing place and the scale of it surprised me. It's also quite unsettling at times when you think of the people going about their business only to have a volcano explode and bury them. Happily it wasn't a total surprise as an earlier eruption had caused many people to move away and hence avoid the disaster.

Anyway, well worth a visit if you are in the area.
More on my flickr if you are interested.

Yes the last pic is of some pour soul caught in the disaster. It's not a body, but a plaster of paris mould from where the remains were found.

Must have been terrifying!
