VF del sud day 32: Torchiarolo to Lecce, 23.5km

Early morning in the olive groves. Many have died – drought maybe?

A slightly earlier start and it was very pleasant walking while it was still cool. The first two hours was farm roads, the middle section through barren ground dominated by wind turbines, and the last seven km the inevitable trudge through the satellite suburbs and urban wasteland beside the highway. However the destination is definitely worth it, and as soon as I was through the old city gates the better known side of Lecce was revealed.

Today is our 30th wedding anniversary, so we get to celebrate in a special location!

View from the B&B. Nothing like some Roman ruins in the background to make you realize you are not quite so ancient after all.
