(Note :  All entries from now until Perth in November are way
shorter than they should be, as all out text got stolen, together with
our laptop, all our valuables, and almost our whole campervan, when it
was broken into and trashed in Rome at the end of October.  Have a look
at that entry if you want to have a look at the damage the bastards
did.  The next month or so´s text is written 6 months later, so we may
have forgotten some bits!)

We spent the next couple of days in the ´heel of the boot´, around the lovely town of Lecce with its stately squares and grand sandstone buildings, then to Otranto, with its ornate cathedrals, both highlights of the region.  We crossed towards the ´ínstep of the boot´ to the village of Gallipoli, a fortified headland (virtually an island) where the fishermen in their traditional boats mended nets by the port.  The ¨Heel´- a great place to spend a few days.
