... on and went out into the world. I know I looked as miserable as I felt, but I knew I wasn't going to see any of these people on the street ever again, so who cares? I had no WiFi, no phone service, no map, and absolutely no idea where I was going. My body hated me for every step that I took, but I'm an independent biatch and I was on a mission for soup. I found a grocery store, but of course soup just wasn't a thing, so I settled for pasta and by ...

The men wear skinny leg jeans. Nice jumpers and coats. Mostly nice leather shoes. I haven't seen many fat people here (other than the odd tourist. We stick out quite well). The old ladies mostly wear dresses or skirts with stockings and good shoes. The people ...

I had ravioli with butter and sage dressing and then veal in lemon sauce ...
Raining again this morning. It's quite cold too. Got a taxi to the station - 12 euro - about 5 mins driving. Pretty expensive. Regional train to Martina Franca - about 2 hours, 7.70 euros. Countryside is very flat and quite stony. There's some dry stone walls and I even saw a shepherd with his sheep. Lots of olive trees (some very old), grape vines, market gardens. Lots of little villages only about 5 mins apart (by train). There's older school kids on the train. Don't ...
