Beautiful Puglia, Italy

Will somebody please drop me off in this place and let me stay for awhile? It is gorgeous! Who really cares where it is but for those who do…at the heel of the Italian peninsula lies Puglia, a region best known for its Tuscan cuisine as well as its arid, rustic landscape on which a splendid display of whitewashed towns and villages highlights the scenery. The area produces much of the country’s wine, olive oil, produce, and wheat used to make pasta. The cuisine alone is enough to make me want to go. In the north, the mountainous terrain of Gargano greets the Adriatic with dramatic white cliffs overlooking azure waters, and as you travel down the coast, the view transforms into sand pebble beaches mingling between ancient farmland. At the southern tip lies the beautiful town of Lecce, known as “Florence of the South” for the splendor and profusion of its baroque architecture from the 17th Century.
TAKE ME THERE!

Beautiful Italian Movie

Just came back from seeing The Great Beauty.
It’s full of surreal wanderings, humorous with
touches of satire and melancholy and the
splendors of Rome?… absolutely gorgeous.
I couldn’t stop goggling at his apartment
overlooking the Colosseum. I want to live there.
See this movie if you have the chance.
