Postcard from Paestum

Our most recent summer trip to Italy was almost four years ago and it was heavenly.  It was our first time visiting the country in late June, which meant fewer crowds and more wonderful moments like visiting the ruins at Paestum and feeling like the only people there.  We arrived an hour or so before closing when the sun was setting low in the sky, casting a glow on the ruins, and we barely bumped into another person.  In fact our only real company was a band of undomesticated dogs skipping past the ruins which was quite a sight.
