I thought you may all enjoy how the average Italian pedestrian Cool passes thier time getting around their towns and cities.

This could literally have been taken anywhere in Italy! No such thing as a safe crossing here..... Rolling Eyes

Yep, it seems like it is survival of the fittest. LOL. My DH was aghast the first time he saw me step into moving traffic in Rome. That's how it is done though. Of course, it works better if there is a crowd of people to act as a buffer! LOL.

Wow..I would hate for my kids to cross the street there. Funny, I wouldn't have worried about this when I wasn't a mom but now...
