Bari, Fasano, Alberobello

overcast 15 °C

I spent some time, Friday until Monday (10th) in a gorgeous little village on the foothills, just south of Bari, called Fasano. The mountains were beautiful and the place was right near the beach. Although it was too cold to swim (it is still winter here) it was warm enough to sit on the beach and enjoy the sun. The water was so blue and I wanted to jump in, but it was icy cold. So I spent Saturday enjoying the beach and Sunday I went to another little village called Alberobello. Here the entire village is made of these weird simple homes that have white plaster walls and stones for the roof. They are kind of built into the ground and are cylindrical in shape. The stones in the roof then come up like a cone. I cant imagine living in one of these, because they are not much more than a single room, but they are meant to be very warm in winter and cool in summer, because of their odd shape. The entire village is made up of these buildings and it is really lovely to walk around the streets...of course there are hundreds of tourists but it was still really nice. Anyway, Im running out of time, so Ill tell you about Florence and Pisa another time...Buongiorno...
