|bringing an olive alive into ghost architexture of polygonal Pogliono||
12/28/22 | Torre Canne, Puglia > Woke up near Fasano + walked around the borgo + tried to go to the Chiese Rupestre rock church but it was closed, then shifted close by, taking our time thru olive groves to another spa-type place but not as ritzy + on the beach. Walked south for miles (10+ miles) on the beach poking around in tidepools.
12/29> Pogliono del Mare> shifted back north of Monopoli a bit... our trajectory seems a bit random, but there was a reason why... perhaps certain places were booked. Staying at this little place overlooking the apparently famous cliffy cove (we say "apparently" b/c we went from visiting ghost towns of Puglia to suddenly having hordes of ppl taking selfies on the beach below our room... must be geo-tagged our featured in a TV show). Went for a walk south towards Monopoli along clifftops then came back + had a makeshift lunch on our terraza, absolutely beautiful out, sunny + 60°+... most of the day in a T-shirt (much to the shock of Italians who are bundled in wool coats w/ scarves... it's really a phenomena).
