In nearly a week of driving in Italy there's one thing I have learned: you're never going fast enough for the Italian driver behind you. And he or she will will ride your rear bumper no matter what your speed.

Spent 2 months in Germany driving a rental. Tailgating is very popular there, as well.

Ha!  My most intense driving (well riding) experience so far overseas has been in Romania.  They drive aggressively.

It's been out of production for 47 years but it's still a common sight to see the classic Fiat 500 on Italian roads.  I'm seeing one or two of these every day.  I'm sure the dry climate helps keep the rust at bay.   But shouldn't there be some Innocenti Minis still around too?  Haven't seen any of them.

Man those 500s are small!

Spotted this guy today walking around Florence in a kilt and "Scotland" t-shirt. Now I don't feel so bad for looking "American"!   ;D
