A bit fuzzy from the night before I knocked my 35mm film camera over. Deciding to assess any damage I took lazy walk on to the balcony and had a surprising view. Almost a soon as I framed the street and checked whether the lens could focus, or was even cracked, I was seeing a man getting mugged!
An elderly man was having his wallet stolen by some character but luckily his cries for help were answered. Within a few seconds a young woman and man from a local restaurant were able to wrestle the would be thief off the older gentlemen and free him. The old man was able to shuffle away (still in possession of his wallet) and no one got hurt. No knives, no guns, no grandstanding. As quickly as it happened everyone dispersed. It will be interesting to see the film frames of this theft that almost happened. Evidence that a few caring souls still live in this city.
