Знание - сила

Две типичные, напористые американки с громкими голосами, персональным гидом и десятилетними детьми, в Помпеи.

- So, are all these buildings ancient or not?
- What do you mean "ancient"?... They were built in ...
- I am not asking when they were built! I am asking was it before or after the eruption?

Гид-итальянец и я, случайно стоящая рядом, переглядываемся.

- That would be before, ma'am.
