I've been ignoring my blog ... apart from the odd ssd product update ... there's been no photos of things that inspire me ... I guess I've been busy ... I guess its been summer(ish) ... I guess its time to start posting again. So lets take ourselves back two and a half months to our trip to Puglia, in Southern Italy. Ahhhh ... just thinking about it warms me up and relaxes me. The city rising from the sea above is Polignano a Mare.
These buildings are part of Sassi di Matera, an ancient town which began as a prehistoric cave settlement. Most of these buildings are actually the built entrances to caves.
The people in Puglia were incredibly friendly and generous. Especially in the towns were tourists weren't common. We were given fruit for free, people refused our tips, and generally people were very patient with our dreadful Italian.
