Pickpockets 1

Pickpockets don’t just come out after dark, nor do they hang around only tourist spots and transportation hubs. They strike at all hours, in all venues, especially where money changes hands. So be on alert at banks, currency exchange booths, outdoor food stands and open-air markets, among other venues. Pickpocket zones also include plazas, carnivals and similar places where there are crowds and lots of jostling. Of course, your pocket can be picked on an empty street; someone can “knock” into you and walk away with your wallet — so keep your distance from strangers if you can.
