Witnessed today – December 4th, 2015 – on Sant Pere Mes Baix at 16hrs… the bird shit tactic applied to a group of hapless tourists.

Taking place in front of Clarins, formerly Schlecker, a shout went up as the assailant made his escape alongside Palau Alos.

The victim was left mopping residue from his jacket. The tactic, of course, is to spray something on the victim, cause distraction and then make off with the booty.

It has been a while since we’ve witnessed something happening in the city, things have improved, but this illustrates that we’re not yet finished with the thieves of old Barcelona town.

    Glad to see you back on the job. We’ve missed your reports and commentary.

    Maybe you should carry a pepper gas spray on your hand–ready to attack any time–if you are in Barcelona. Better, never go to Barcelona if you don’t have to!
