The lonely planet of Spain has devoted a chapter to the Spanish thief. In Europe, only Spain can compete with the number of Italian thieves. I am also amazed at the creativity of the Spanish thief. Madrid is unbelievable, the Spanish thief is even more incredible. As a kind of art, there are only Spanish thieves. They usually have the following tricks: 1, when you are in the hotel, deliberately take a piece of paper, cover it on your mobile phone or wallet, then whisper to you for a while, then grow away. When you take the paper off, you find that your phone or wallet is missing. 2, In a famous attraction, one person pretends to take a map to ask for directions to attract your attention, and another person is not ready to steal your belongings. 3, when you walk on the street, suddenly drop a basin of water or bird cockroaches, just when you are ready to open the carry-on bag to find a paper towel, a few "good people" suddenly come around to wipe your head Body, took the opportunity to steal your things. We have encountered this trick in Seville.

On April 15, 2019, the world was stunned to learn fire had ravaged Notre-Dame Cathedral in the heart of Paris. In a matter of hours, centuries of history that had survived revolution, two world wars, and natural disasters was swept from existence. It is with heavy heart we mourn the loss of these cultural treasures.
