Europe 2005 - Pisa

We could not resist stopping in Pisa to see the leaning tower. All the buildings there in the square were leaning one way or another. It was like a 13th century fun-house. It really didn't look like a stone structure could lean that far over without at least some of stones falling out. There was no way that the building looks safe to climb so of course I wanted to. L. does not have the ability to run off of adrenaline so she wanted to sit this climb out. We then found out that the wait was 4 hours. I decided I would rather spend 4 more hours in Rome. Instead we watched everyone taking pictures while we ate lunch. Everyone seemed to fit into 2 categories with no one wanting just a regular picture. There were the nice kids that wanted to look like they were doing their best to hold the tower and the teenagers who wanted the picture to appear like they were knocking it over.
