We’re Famous!

Last October, my husband, Martin, our dog, Shakespeare, and I spent the fall vacations in Tuscany. It was our second time there. We just love the atmosphere and all the things you can do with a dog. Italians love dogs. They’ve allowed Shakespeare in some museums, restaurants, and even some stores. What’s great about going to Tuscany with a dog are the many sites to see free and places to explore.

This second time, we visited some of the same towns as the first visit along with new ones. Near the Tuscan town we stay at is a place called Bibbiena. It was a dreary day, so we decided to stay in the area. While we browsed the streets of Bibbiena, so did the Google car, capturing pictures of the streets. Well, they not only took pictures of the streets, but they also have a few with us.

My husband recently searched Google Maps in satellite view of Bibbiena to see if he could see us. Here’s what they captured.

That’s me in the red jacket, while Shakespeare watches Martin on the far right
There we are straight-ahead. They didn’t even blur our faces, assuming we were far enough away.
Here, they did blur out our faces
This one, they even blurred Shakespeare’s face for privacy reasons. LOL!

There were a few more pictures of us roaming around Bibbiena. I guess even without the red jacket, we’d probably be caught because there weren’t too many people around town.

So I guess if someone Googles Bibbiena and followed the streets in Satellite mode, they’ll come across us walking around…at least for a few years.

Google, Privacy, and Oxymoron,
