As I may have mentioned I have this thing about not wanting to look like a tourist, even though as S reminded me I am. Maybe part of it it is not wanting to draw too much attention to myself saying,"Soft target! rob me!" so I avoid sandals and socks and taking photos with gigantic tablets and doing segway tours. We saw them almost everywhere we went, though funnily enough not in Venice. There's just something about these groups that makes me giggle. From their matching helmets and their upright postures and earnest expressions. What would the collective noun for a group of segways be? A durp?
Or maybe I'm just secretly jealous because I've always wanted to try one.
