... in the late afternoon after a fun-filled and frenetic morning as I talked about in the previous blog. We made our way from Rome to Foggia on the high-speed train. This baby cuts through the countryside at about 150mph—quite the experience. The first two hours we covered the most ground. The last hour was less high speed and more rocking, swaying and jostling speed (made me a bit motion sick). In any case we arrived ...

On the way to town, we found a cheese wonderland with aged cheeses, spiced cheeses and barrels of fresh bufala mozzarella. The later of which became our lunch. Things tend to work out. Thank you ...
