... Story 2. After about 3 hours, my roommates still weren't back and on top of my stomach ache, I was starting to get really hungry, and call me crazy, but I wasn't in the mood for the beer in the fridge or the fries in the freezer. I was in my PJ's (it was 4PM), and I put on a brave face and went on a trek for some soup. So I was bra-less, make-up-less, had my rain boots (it wasn't raining...for once) tucked into my pretty purple floral PJ pants, and put ...

... unfinished houses being lived in!
Back to the trulli houses - one was only 14 square meters in total and with a family of seven living in it - 3 slept upstairs, 4 down stairs, the kitchen was the size of a closet and toilet outside. The walls are white washed limestone and the roof is like a grey slate stone stacked into a cone shape. Some have painted Christian symbols on the roofs which is recent addition this century, and clay pots which I'm not sure why. As ...
