Where I stayed

Getting off the ferry from Greece, met Paolo who just happened to live in Matera. He showed me a photo and told me it was a Unesco World Heritage Site so I went there. I wanted to see the tulli houses and Paolo promised to take me so I was set.

Matera was beautiful with an interesting history. It is full of little cave houses and in the 1960's was rife with disease and poverty. But has renewed itself as an interesting place to visit. Plus I ate the best pizza in my life here. And drank some good wine. Actually thinking now, I wonder why I left?
