Subject: Safety & Madrid Pickpockets
I find that safety and awareness are the travelers friend. Use hotel safes when available. Don't get to caught up in excitement of the moment, always keep a hand, foot or some part of yourself attached to your stuff. Keep your belongings to a min. when in crowded public areas. Remember these are professionals that make there living doing this. Most times you can outwit thieves through clever awareness. And always protect your money and passport above all. David Ca. U.S.A.
