Long Walk Back - With Interesting Attempted Scam by Woman
So we decided to walk back to the hotel the long way... We went back through the old city, through Jaffa Gate, then up through Ben Yehuda street, then a left on King George street.
Besides for the good exercise...
We met a woman on King George who told us that she locked her keys in her car and needs to pay a locksmith to open it up. She said she can't get her money, because she cant get into her house. She said she was being a 100% honest.
I replied, I don't believe you and walked away.
When that happens, you call a cop or you tell the locksmith you will pay him when he opens the car, so you can get your money.
This woman was obviously preying on tourists... such a same to see. No pics taken of these events. :)
