... and nearly everyone you see has a cone of gelato in their hand, this is Polignano a Mare. It was such a typical Italian town and I loved it so much. One night at dinner I saw a young boy, no older than eight, drinking from a glass of wine. Everyone at my table was appalled, but I figured this was what my mom always talked about at Christmas! Ever since I can remember, my mom has always placed a glass of wine in front of me at dinner because it's just ...
... to go to Matera today but as its Sunday the train doesn't go there and the bus was too difficult so instead I went to Polignano a Mare. It's a town about 30 mins by train down the coast. It was a nice train ride. Once again, very agricultural. There were a lot of locals out and about. I think it must be a special Sunday cause it's 1 week before Easter. I've seen a lot of people with bunches of olive branches. Maybe it's Palm Sunday ...
... been hard in the old days for people here. The Trulli houses would have been very cold in winter and probably hot in summer. No power or running water. This area was a very poor area of Italy.

Then I found a little shop that had a 1969 model Vespa scooter so I just had to buy it. Good momento ...
... the school times are but the train left Lecce at 12.45 and they were getting off at different stops so obviously finished school. We keep passing fields of solar panels. Good! As we get closer to MF it starts to get a little but hillier. Lots of terraces now. And stone fruit blossom. We pass a lot of the little trulli houses. They're so cute. Look like fairy houses, or hobbit houses. They're everywhere. Beautiful countryside. It's still raining when the train arrives in MF ...
