    ... and this time more modern geometric styles. A quick discussion with the owner and we were sure we wanted one, and also found out that the Hungarian F1 had just finished, and Ricciardo had just won! We continued on foot to look through the rest of the lower area of the town, knowing that we could come back in the morning to buy the lamp.

    ... houses deeming it to be too unhygienic. The sewer travelled down the middle of the street. It is now a unesco site and some houses are being renovated inside with all the mod cons but very expensive to maintain. We left Matera and arrived at our hotel late in the afternoon.
