What is “Richie Rich” in Italian?

The tourist office woman in Ostuni didn’t speak a word of English, maybe she know some other languages. But Wynette did pretty well with her Italian, maybe. We wanted to see some stores so she showed us on the map where a shopping center was. We went out there and found a very fancy area of very expensive houses — and no shopping center, but we had a good time.

It was hard to get a good picture here but this house at the “trulli” shaped roof that this region is famous for. We saw lots more the next day on the way to and at Cisternino.

There was a Hindu retreat, based in Brindisi but with a pretty nice place here in Ostuni.

and cross that might have been a tower wire tower, behind the cat

and some who didn’t get the memo that everything had to be white.
