Arriving in a mid-size city in northwest Tuscany, I’m dropped into a strange world where everybody seems to be doing the same bizarre dance.
People from around the world walk into a big piazza, stop what they’re doing, and strike a crazy pose — arms akimbo, jazz hands.
They hold the pose for a few seconds…
…and then go back to normal.
Everybody’s doing it. They can’t seem to help themselves.
Is this some mass hysteria?
Wait, pan out…
Aha. I forgot to mention. The city I’m in is Pisa.
I guess it just goes to show: You can’t say you’ve been to Pisa until you snap a picture “propping up” the Leaning Tower.
The thing is, there’s much more to Pisa than just its famous tipsy tower. In my next blog, I’ll offer a peek at the untouristy side of this very famous destination.
