Be careful of groups of children in many cities. These children will distract you by mobbing you for candy or money. During this they will bump you numerous times and pickpocket you.

I had this happen in Lisbon. They were unsuccessful but a boy, about 10 years of age, went for my pants pocket while three or four others were mobbing my wife and I. One yell and they took off running.

Take care,
