Cap has had two items stolen from him by pickpockets here in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
One was his smartphone, taken a few months ago. The other, just a few days ago, was his Nikon Coolpix point and shoot camera. That was taken by a pickpocket as invisible as a ghost. He put his bag down on a chair while he tried on a warm jacket.
The camera was inside a velcro fastener and TWO zipped pockets. Everything was re-fastened.
Those are the invisible thieves. There are others, much more flagrant in their modus operandi, and it does not appear there is anything one can do about them.
I do not know what these street vendors are selling, but it appears to be a legume of some sort. Perhaps a dried red bean.
Look! I caught the thief in the act!
It was so bold, it looked over an assortment before deciding on one.
Let this be a lesson to you:
|Look at that brazen little thief!|
