Recalling a Barcelona Pickpocketing Episode

Last weekend some colleagues and I were exchanging stories of being pickpocketed, tales of near-misses from the road.

Mine came in Barcelona a half dozen years ago, when I managed to fend off a pair of petty thieves who were working in concert on a crowded metro by yelling obscenities at them. I offer no guarantees, but it was effective for me. I posted about it at the time; if you missed it and have 70 seconds to kill, do check it out.

The image? From a much more peaceful corner of Barcelona which manages to live up to its name. The full uncropped image is below.
