Sunday 13 May: A day of traveling. We said goodbye to Flavia and the other tour members with the exception of Helen and Paul who were traveling on the same flights to Bari. We walked to the airport shuttle bus stop in Piazza Politeama to find it mainly closed off with the police everywhere and we were told that there was to be a demonstration. A bus person told us to go 100m or so further on to catch the bus but had no idea what the demonstration was about. When we did get the bus the traffic was horrendous getting out of Palermo and we could not believe it would be so bad on a Sunday morning.

After a short flight to Rome and another to Bari we arrived at 4.15pm and shared a taxi with Helen and Paul. We were dropped off first at the Palace Hotel and they continued on to the station to get the train to Lecce. Once we had checked in, we went for a walk around the old town of Bari which is surrounded by water. It has a very interesting medieval core and we were impressed with how clean and attractive it was. It is not at all touristy which was a pleasant change. After a good walk we found a little bar near a huge castle where we had some pasta and pizza with a wine before heading back for an early night.
