Today is la Festa di San Giuseppe, and also Father's Day in Italy. For breakfast, I treated myself to the festa's special pastry, la zeppola, which is basically a cream puff. In the outlying villages, there will be bonfires tonight to celebrate the festival, but not here in Lecce. However, last night there was a busy passeggiata (evening stroll), complete with musicians and street performers in the centro storico, where I'm staying at a lovely B&B. It's 6 pm and the bells of the nearby Duomo are pealing....time to go!
