Smart, and getting smarter.

There's are many reasons why you should go "tiny". Tiny homes are becoming more and more popular. You just have to look on You Tube for tiny homes and there are some wonderful small homes, mostly in USA. However just out of Forth, in Tassie there are some industrious people building tiny homes.  

Tiny cars, wow, they are everywhere. Parking is easy, that's for sure. Some are electric, now that's Smart!

Daimler Benz have been working on their Smart car for 20 years. There are lots of them in Rome. Some of them are electric and even though their turning circle is not the size of a sixpence, it should be, they can park almost anywhere.

It's hard to imagine that the Guinness World Record is for 20 people in a Smart car!!

Rome has the second highest motorcycle per capita figures in the world, only pipped by Soeul.. And even with those stats the Smart car is everywhere. They are cute and for two people, or one person and a dog, or one person and a baby they are perfectly comfortable.

Renault have produced a smaller car than the Smart car, and I'm sure it has a tighter turning circle too. 

 cute eh?? And it's a single seater.
