This is a common occurrence in Italy. People standing in the street talking or they are driving down the street and see a friend - they both stop their cars and talk while traffic is backing up behind them. In some towns there are either no sidewalks or very small ones OR like in my town the streets are so narrow you must park on the sidewalks.
This just sets off The King. I don't know why.... I can be patient. He has none.
I was actually taking a photo of the buildings and then when I downloaded the photos I noticed the ladies. The car on the left is parked so we had to stop and let the silver car pass through. I wonder how long they stood in the street and talked!
