THE FOLLOWING IS TAKEN FROM MY BLOG...
But I think that it is important enough to make a post of it
It COULD save someone's life!!!
This may make you smile. HOW TO CROSS A STREET IN ITALY. First of all, think
"DIAGONAL". You wouldn't want to cross the street straight, that wouldn't realy be a
"cross". So, chose a place where you can cross, and as you cross, make sure you can't really
see the face of the person driving (or hopefully stopping) his car. THAT WAY (and here is
the logic) the person will be FORCED to stop, because he KNOWS you can't SEE him!! Get
it? It is important to know all of this because when you are in the driver's seat and see
someone start to cross, do not think he wants to make eye contact with you. HEAVENS
NO!!!! That would not be a sure way of getting you to cross!!! Get it???
