We were robbed!
WARNING :: Travelers beware!
Oh my we have seen the signs for pick pocketers everywhere. We have read in every book we have to watch for people lifting anything from you without knowing. There are even signs in the elevator in the Eiffel Tower. We have warned the kids. We carry only what we need. We thought we were smart - but we were not. We were robbed of all money, right under our noses.
Today we had every dime taken and seriously have nothing left in our pockets. Good thing our flight home is free because we would have no way to get home!
The guy who took our money was sly and looked so nice when we first saw him. He was friendly and smiled the whole time we were with him. He had a lot of friends with him that got my kids attention so he could get us when we were not looking.
He had a large nose and the a head the size of Texas. His ears were seriously as big as his feet and that smile just drew us in.
It was when we came home tonight we realized he took every dime we had left. Just in case any of you reading this may see him, don't forget this face and beware! He even looks like a rat!
Ok. So it was a long day of lines and euros flying out of our pockets left and right. The kids had a good time but had just as many meltdowns as they did in the Louvre.
The white sheets are screaming my name!
