The two sides of the illegal, counterfeit bag industry.
There are 5.2 legal immigrants living in Italy. And they aren't aloud to work even if they have paperwork. So they resort to selling counterfeit purses, sunglasses and watches to tourists in order to survive and save up.
On the other hand, selling and buying these fakes cheapens the value of the real thing. Italy is home to the 5th largest counterfeit shopping district int he world, Rome. With New York it in 1st place.

Just look at that amazing umbrella! Reminds me of Penguin., the famous Batman villain.
Incredible view of the grounds.
Why look, I found a vintage art rendering of Penguin with a wonderfully colored umbrella.
The resemblance is uncanny. Terrifyingly so...
Here's the best dressed in Austria chillin' outside of a sausage stand.
These cuties kill me. Europeans definitely dress sporty and simple.
And lastly, I leave you with proof that the Austrians are obsessed with Lederhosen! These were billboards and storefronts in Salzburg. I wish the stores were open but apparently Europe is so Christian that nothing, I mean NOTHING is open on Sundays. I'm sure they're good and expensive tho. This store looked proper epic.
Tune in next week when we go to Venice!
