  THE SECRET GARDEN SUMMARY  Mary Lennox lives with her rich parents in India. Noone has ever really cared for her; hardly anyoneknows she is even there. One day a choleraepidemic breaks out and nearly everyone dies.Mary hides in the nursery and when she wakes upthe next morning, there is no one left. She is sent toEngland where her uncle, Archibald Craven, lives. Awoman called Medlock is sent to take her to themanor. Normally the 500 year old Misselthwaite Manor on the Yorkshire moors isn’t a plac e for achild to grow up. There are about a thousandrooms, hundreds locked, so no one can go in. Thereis a big mystery about a secret garden that had been locked up ten years ago. A young housemaid called Martha has to look after Mary. First Mary doesn’t like her much, butbecause Martha is so nice and funny she soon starts liking her. Martha gives her askipping rope, so Mary can play in the many gardens of Misslethwaite Manor. In thegardens she meets Ben Weatherstaff, an old gardener, and his robin. The robin becomes Mary’s first friend. He shows her the key to the secret garden and also the door hidden under thick ivy. As soon as she enters the garden, it becomes her own little mystic world. One day she hears cries and looks for the person (It isn’t th e firsttime she has heard it, but every time she wanted to look somebody stopped her andgave her some explanation). In a room behind a tapestry she finds a boy, Colin Craven, her cousin. He can’t walk nor stand up, and everybody thinks that he’s going to die. His father has never wanted to see him because he’s so different from his dead mother.With Dickon, Martha’s brother, and Mary he goes into the secret garden in a kind of awheel chair, and learns to walk. They all say it’s “Magic” that made all thes e wonders possible: Colin’s walking, Mary’s change into a nice girl and her joy in the secret garden.  POMPEYA Pompeii was a city of Ancient Rome,located near modern Naples and other smaller venues in the region of Campania, near the modern city of Naples and situated around the bay of the same name in the province of Naples.Weather: 19 ° C, wind S at 8 km / h, 68%humidityLocal time: Wednesday 18:15 Attractions: Mount Vesuvius, Villa of theMysteries, House of the Vettii, House of the Faun, Amphitheatre of Pompeii,Temple of Apollo, Temple of Jupiter,House of Loreius Tiburtinus, House of the Tragic Poet, House of Menander,House of the surgeon.
