Lungano Antonio Pacinotti / Pisa, Italy
Have you ever wished you could gab with the gulls? I approached them with a pleasant but apparently unconvincing "buongiorno". They didn't buy into it. I then suspected they were chattering about the lone kayaker on the Arno River that had just passed them by so I suggested with a snicker what an easy target he'd be for a guano drop. They stayed put. And the lovely weather - that's always an easy conversation starter - but they looked at me strangely as if to say "it's Italy, it's always beautiful .. stupid tourist". Stupid gulls.
