We all know the famous “Thriller” video from Michael Jackson made in 1982 and we all know the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. What do these two have in common? If you do not know, I tell you: The zombies… 🙂 😛 🙂
Around 13 years ago I was here for the first time and I remember how impressed I was of the tower and all the historical stories around it. As a good young tourist I was, I took some nice pictures with the tower, I bought the postcards, the leaning tower itself, the key chain and left home happily with my souvenirs and nice memories.
J U N E 2 0 1 7 a new experience was waiting for me in the Era of mobile phones, cameras, selfie sticks and digitalizations: hundreds of tourist with their hands up, doing hand stand, throwing kicks, standing in naughty positions all remind me perfectly of the above mentioned video 🙂
Let us count together the “zombies” (people having their hands up) in this picture.
and in this one. 🙂 🙂 🙂
The tower itself is a beautiful construction, the square itself is a wonderful place (where you are not allowed to step on the grass) and the experience is priceless in all the ways possible. After 2 hours on a hot Sunday afternoon, crowd, ambulant sales, street artists, security with machin guns, I took my nice summer hat and left content for being able to live this experience. This time the only souvenir I have are some nice pictures that bring a smile on my face each time.
But not before I took one picture myself. I made this one specially for you <3
Thank you so much for reading. Fell free to like and share. Leave a comment to tell us how your Pisa experience was.
With <3 from Ioana.
