Today we publish our “Essential warning about robbery in Barcelona” in 20 languages. (For illustration look at our homepage between February 3rd and February 10th 2012.)
English is spoken in every corner of the world, but we want to provide a little content for those who don’t speak the language in countries like China, Russia, Korea and Turkey.
The English content appears below, and we then link to the dedicated posts we’ve published of the same content translated into other languages. It’s likely we will add to the assembled languages over time.
Here is the text we used:
Barcelona is a beautiful city and we urge you to visit, but please be aware that we have a crime problem here and tourists are a target. If you are not cautious you will be robbed when you are here. Here are a few valuable tips: Please carry maps and guidebooks discreetly. Please leave your passports, drivers license and essential documents in your hotel. Please carry only the minimum amount of cash and cards required. Please do not leave your bag on the ground or on a table or chair. Opt for a small camera if you can, and carry it your hand with the strap wrapped around your thumb. The following might sound weird, but if someone tries to put their leg between your legs, or tells you that you have birdshit on your clothing, or suddenly wants to give you a hug on the street… you are being robbed. Robbery in Barcelona is rarely accompanied by violence, but you really need to watch what you are doing. Please be vigilant. Be suspicious. If you are robbed, please report it to the local police. If you speak English, please visit our site at www.robbedinbarcelona.com for more advice.
