Unfortunately I was a victim of theft again. Of course I didn’t notice until a bit later that all my cash was missing giving the criminal ample time to leave or dispose of my money. I did go to the newly stationed Security person at the entrance to the market to notify him of the theft and see if anything could be done even though I had low expectations. His response after hearing that this was the second time I had money stolen at the market was to say, “You should have learned.”
Amazing. What I have learned is that you can expect nothing to ever be done by Officials and criminals are allowed free run to do as they like. I also learned that I will never return to the market and will encourage everyone I know to do the same. Ah Portugal...
