When I went to Hersonissos in Crete, my boyfriend and I were having a meal along the main bar/restaurant road. Afterwards we went for a walk, and this lady came up and tried to sell us a rose.
She wouldn’t take no for an answer and kept pestering us. Whilst she was doing this, there were a couple of kids running round us.
What we didn’t realise is that the rose lady was the distraction, and one of the kids was trying to get into my bag. My boyfriend saw this out of the corner of his eye, and quickly pulled me away and walked on.
