... and nearly everyone you see has a cone of gelato in their hand, this is Polignano a Mare. It was such a typical Italian town and I loved it so much. One night at dinner I saw a young boy, no older than eight, drinking from a glass of wine. Everyone at my table was appalled, but I figured this was what my mom always talked about at Christmas! Ever since I can remember, my mom has always placed a glass of wine in front of me at dinner because it's just ...
... Quite easy to get around although I didn't go into the old town section. I got my bus ticket for Naples for tomorrow. 10 euro. My bloody email isn't working. I don't think I'm going to be able to get it unblocked while I'm away. Absolute pain! So if anyone needs to contact me either send a text message in my phone or message via FB (either public or private). You can also leave a comment on the blog site but it's out there in the ...
Day 3. No rain today so I got the train to Alberobello which is about 10 km away. The view was amazing with all the little trulli houses scattered throughout the countryside.

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 ...
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 ...
