Caught Picking up a Hooker?

Saturday, 8th November 2008 by

On first glance it looks like the guy driving this www.rentandrent.it van on the outskirts of Rome has been caught red handed by the Google Street View camera, whilst engaged in the process of attempting to procure the services of a prostitute.

On closer examination however – it seems like a strange place to be trawling for sex. And what is the woman doing exactly? And what are the things at her feet? Bottles perhaps, but what for?

So Italians, is this a well known pick up spot? Or is there something more pedestrian going on?
