Well, Hello There Number Eight!

29 May


Yep: there you have it, folks.

Photographic proof that the 8 tram is now running up and down Via delle Botteghe Oscure. There are a bunch of new stoplights so people can cross the 3 steps across some of the side-roads, too.

It’s all good fun. They’re in “collaudo” mode which is like “testing, testing, 1, 2, 3.”

Plus let me tell you, I was not the only one taking pictures today. I might be weird—no, I am definitely weird, and tend to take pictures of totally random things—but clearly I’m not the only one who thinks it’s strange seeing good ol’ number 8 heading towards Piazza Venezia.

And now, in other completely unrelated news: just walking by the BNL bank, minding my own business, and I’m forced to ask myself, and now you all as well: WTF does “contactless” mean? Things that make you go hmmm…
