The Chocolate Trick
Since our return from Spain I want to thank the couple who forewarned us in the Letters column of the chocolate syrup trick of thieves. It happened to us twice, in Barcelona in front of our hotel and in Madrid on the street that is comparable to Rodeo Drive. Had we not known about the trick, it might have been disastrous.
We just ran into our hotel in the first case, and into an open, well-lit area in the second. One man's wearing a white cloth alerted me the first time, the second time the feeling of wetness when the chocolate was spilled onto him alerted my husband. Many thanks for a tip which probably saved us a lot of grief.
