... I got back to the apartment, my roommates were already back and had found me soup. Figures. They also got me cereal though (my weakness), so soup and pasta be damned! I ate half the box in one sitting. And that was the highlight of my first day in Polignano a Mare.
I was really hoping to feel better in the morning, but alas, I did not. I made myself go out for lunch, at least, and try to explore just a little. I didn't stay out long, but it ...
... very nicely dressed. I've seen quite a few black Africans down this way although probably not as many as I thought I would. I imagine there's quite a few trying to get to Europe from Africa, legally or not. Made it to the hostel - Olive Tree Hostel. It's quite nice and the receptionist is very helpful.

After lunch I went ...
... 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 ...
