lima: city of thieves

everywhere we go people tell us to watch out for scam artists, thieves, pickpockets, rapists, banditos, and machete wielding gangsters.  and wouldn't you know it, lima is no different.  this morning at breakfast while i was working on my novel, i looked over to see a robbery in progress.  this turtle had nearly succeeded in stealing my hello kitty wallet right out of my bag!  ay dios mio!  mira las tortugas!
