... to see just how beautiful this place really is. There are views straight out of postcards everywhere and the sea was perfectly clear and turquoise blue, it really was a place right from my dreams. The only downside was the whipping wind, but I can only imagine how perfect a destination this would be in the Summer.
The town was so cute, too. If you picture an Italian village where everyone knows each other, everyone is yelling, the families ...
Taxi to train station 10 euro, 5 mins. Ticket to Bari 5.60 euro, (almost 2 hours- slow train). Go figure. The trains in this neck of the woods are not Tren Italia. They're run privately and are not the most comfortable trains. The first half was fine, pretty countryside etc. And then a roma family (I think), like gypsys, got on. They must have been to a trash or treasure market cause they had all this stuff. Toasters, clothes, ...

So on my way back I stopped in at a little coffee shop (the standing only variety) and had a nice cafe latte. Took a photo of the owners. 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 ...
