... up lunch up to the park under the trees, bread buns with tomato and olives baked into them ,filled with salad and cheese.
At night, since it was our last night we went out to dinner in Cisternino. We walked through the old part in the rain and found plenty of places which we had seen earlier in the week. Some places are like a butchers shop with all the meat displayed, you just choose what you want and they'll cook it for you, ...
... dinner at 8. Antipasto, pasta, meat and salad main and ricotta cake - all made by Camilla and very delicious.
Bed at 10.30.
A little about our group. Headed by Carol and Neal. She is warm and charming. He is an a artist of some renown and has painted some amazing portraits. They are both fun and relaxed. Elaine and Jenny are travelling alone. Gerry and Helen are retired married couple. All works well so far. ...
We are staying in a cave which is part of the old city of Matera. There are three sections to the room with all mod cons but within the original walls where people have lived for centuries. Lovely stone bath with plenty of hot water. Much appreciated after the long journey. Fascinating.
I slept for two hours after a bath ...
... Big room, unfortunately with a view of their rubbish area not one of the sea or Mount Etna. Never mind the room is very comfortable and much easier for me to get around with it's flat floors not rocks!
Met Helen and Lorraine for a pre-dinner drink on the terrace which has magnificent views. An Aparol Spritz was 12 euros! They know how to charge!
Down to dinner at 7.30 pm. Nothing recordable just pleasant enough. And so to bed!
... going out to dinner at a local Trattoria - hope it stops raining!
About 8 of us got two taxis up to the restaurant.
Went for dinner and it had stopped raining. The trattoria we went to was so good. The food was unbelievable and kept on coming couldn't eat the dessert in the end. We had a magician to keep us amused that was very funny.
Taxis and back to the cave!
