Alberobello

Went to Alberobello today on train. I like the houses (called trullos) but it was very commercial. I then walked to Locorotondo. The walk was lovely – not hilly, but passing those teepee shaped houses amongst olive groves was visually pleasing.

Monopoly

Met up with rep from Frank Salt and looked at two rental properties in Marsalforn, both facing the bay. Neither had enough appeal as both had balconies but not in direct position for sun. Game of Monopoly in the apartment in the evening
