55.5 hours of travel
alot of airline food and far far too much sitting down :(
was picked up from the airport by Rosario and 2.5 hours later arrived in Martignano , where maybe 1000 folk live .. it's a tiny secret village in the Lecce province
and I love it !
a fast dizzy jetlagged ambientation of the "paese" by the wonderful Paola... whose dinner I savaged while we tore around in her Panda
Pugliese food cannot be beaten
I have to ask Maria (Rosarios wife who made it) for that recipe...some sort of prosciutto and mashed potatoe and cheese and crumbed schiacciato fried thing... just delicious!
Straight up to the rooftops to see the sunsetand muse over the Olive trees that are so distorted and crazily brilliant that I have seen already from the window on the drive here...
its all starting to come together...
cant hold my eyes open any longer ....
