Ostuni, Italy

october 2017

This country-side farm stay consisted of caper berry hunting, abandoned trulli squats, and a causal dinner party at Georgio Armani's guest house. We cooked up arepas by day and hitch-hiked home from Ceglie Messapica by evening. The local markets were overflowing with fresh herbs and marinating olives, and peoples' front yard gardens were flourishing with persimmons + pomegranates + kale + dandelion greens & kadota figs (we thank the locals for their generous donations).

The Trulli:

A traditional dry stone hut

featuring a conical roof - 

Used as a temporary field

shelter and as tiny abodes
