Check out my piece about getting robbed abroad over at The Billfold! (You read about it briefly here.) It was a strange and mostly unpleasant experience, but it makes for a decent story. Here’s an excerpt:
I looked over to check the time, and my purse wasn’t there. My brain couldn’t quite process this. I checked behind me, in case it had fallen over. There was nothing. My brain started to catch up. I leapt to my feet and looked around frantically, but my purse was nowhere to be found….
I couldn’t believe it, I still can’t believe it; this couldn’t happen to me, but it did. I’m mad at myself for being careless. I’m furious at the thief. I’m ready to leave town.
Feel free to leave comments at The Billfold and spread the story around!
