Day 3. No rain today so I got the train to Alberobello which is about 10 km away. The view was amazing with all the little trulli houses scattered throughout the countryside. They're little round houses that the poor people used to live in. Now they've all been or are being done up. Still lots of dry stone walls around here. It's very agricultural. Had a good day wandering around Alberobello. Went into the tourist trulli and the Basillica of Medici. Gees it ...

... is that down south in Italy is very different from the well known areas of Tuscany, Lakes, Dolomites etc. Will see what Sicily brings. 6.11.12 Alberobello to Crotone. Pouring rain, windy, but we got into the car and set Bruce for Cortone and true to form he led us and we did about 20 Kilometres through narrow streets lined with rock walls, similar to what you see in the English countryside. Anyway got on the coast road and the weather eased a bit, sea ...
