is a great day here in Martina Franca, I just adore the way the whole town turns out and there is such a frenetic buzz about the place locals stocking up on the best local food available down to some bargain knickers or even hats which I could not resist today. After the excitement of market morning we retired to the Grand Cafe for Peronni beers and toastie. Nearby was a very Italian senior enjoying his expresso whilst reading the paper. I set up a still life when we returned to out Trullo as the gale of wind made it impossible to do out side. But in the face of adversity came a semi indoor shot of the fruit from the market and my new hat.
