Taking a Walk

It's Wednesday morning and I'm watching Vito ride his bike around the courtyard while Angela and grandma get vegetables at the market—every Wednesday to market! We purchased a little magic device that, inserted into a USB slot allows us to connect to the internet from here, otherwise I would have gone to town to use the internet cafĂ©, which is what I have been doing.

We've been here in Putignano, Italy since the sixth of June, with the short exception of a one-week circuit in Sicily with my parents who were here for a little vacation. We're actually living in a countryside house located between Putignano and Castellana Grotte where Angela's parents have a trullo.

On Sunday morning, Vito and me walked down to the chiesetta or the little church. You can see that Vito's wearing a sweatshirt, because the weather has not been spectacular. We've actually only been to the beach once since we arrived. Vito will start to going to the beach every day starting tomorrow with his cousins and another group of students who are all attending a summer day-camp. He will take a bus to the beach every morning and returning by lunch time. Vito met his teacher yesterday and is very excited about going to "school." Mommy and daddy are excited about having a little free time in the mornings.

Other than that, the job search for me continues. I don't have any leads and we don't know where we'll be in September, but we're optimistic that we'll be somewhere...
