Scammers seem to be getting smarter, in any port, as years go by, creating new and improved ways to seperate people from their hard earned sheckles.
When I went to Europe last year, I heard of this pathetic trick. Someone has, what appears to be a baby swaddled in blankets. All of a sudden, the baby is tossed in the air,and the people standing around, drop what's in their hands, to run to try and catch "the Baby." While people are running, the crew is running, to pick up, what the tourists dropped.
There are always slick willys around, we need to keep our antenna up.
Trip, with her book & tea!
