... 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.

It is nice and quiet here and we have our own kitchen again which is wonderful. We set out and did some shopping at the Conad supermarket and tonight we cooked at home – yeh.
