Summer in Geneva means thieves. Sigh.

My side of the lake, anyway. I was organising insurance yesterday. The girl was adamant that I needed Paquis handbag insurance. They pay up when your handbag gets snatched, an odds on occurrence, or so it feels…my side of the lake. I explained to her that I already had a solution. I don’t take my handbag anywhere unless I really have to. And if I really have to, it will never be because I’m heading Paquis way.

I’ve watched too many robberies or attempted robberies along the lakeside. You’ve bypassed the buskers. You’ve given a wide berth to the monte tricksters. You think you are safe now. But just when you thought it was safe to walk along the water….You’ve fallen for the hustle to get to your wallet. The pretend wrestle to get you to the ground. Well, no, nobody is going to bite at that, surely. But the fake fight two of them stage. They fall against you – accidentally, of course, they don’t even know they are there….

Oh, but they do. You see your wallet is missing. You yell. Your mates start the chase but these guys are way too fast. They don’t have a chance.

Seriously. If you carry a handbag around the lake, Paquis handbag insurance is the way to go.
