Segway in Rome
Segways in Piazza Navona, with Pinocchio
(“Al Sogno” is “At the Dream”)
Rome, September 2010

These things look to be so cool! I've not ridden one, though. The police used to ride them in Ocala's downtown area, but I don't they do that anymore...don't know why.

Did you see that the man who invented the Segway was killed when he went over a cliff on one the other day? How ironic is that?

This scene does look like something out of a dream.

Your Segways look like chariots.

@ Jacob - Danny Kamen, the inventor of the Segway, is alive and well. Jimi Heselden, the man who died, was the British millionaire who bought the company in early 2010.
Segway is a homophone for the Italian term segue, used in music for a smooth transition.

Well, I knew you'd know all the details! Sheesh! What a guy. I'm so jealous - you seem to have a encyclopedic knowledge of just about everything.

I'm really not jealous, but I'm sure as hell impressed! Big time!

I sometimes know little tidbits of stuff and then get half of that wrong!
