I’m reaching into the archives for this one but it’s a shot of one of the oddest places I think I’ve ever been. This place is called Alberobello and it in the heel of Italy (Puglia). You’re looking at the typical houses of the region called Trulli. You half expect Smurfs to walk out any minute when you’re there. The food in the Puglia region is some of the best in Italy – very different than what you generally think of when it comes to food. Here it’s much more Greek-like and even touches of Middle Eastern food. Most Americans never visit this part of Italy but Puglia is a gem of a region in which to spend travel and culinary time.
