I have heard that Barcelona has some of the best chocolate in the world and that they make a cup of hot chocolate that should not be missed! Does anybody know of a place where chocolate can be purchased in Barcelona?

I can't overemphasize the problem with pick-pockets. It was a show in itself sitting at a outdoor restaurant watching them operate. If we could recognize the culprits why can't the police?

I'm all for chocolate, but I'm tuning in to the pickpockets I keep reading about in Europe. Our family has done many cruises to the caribbean, this is the first to the Med (Brilliance on 8/01/07). I've purchased money belts for myself and 15 yr old son. Also pants/jackets with "secure" pockets. Wife has shoulder bag. Appreciate any other suggestions to defeat the pickpockets and purse snatchers without having to wear a suit of armor.

Avtually the only thing you can do is to watch your belongings, donīt stnd by the street artists on Las Ramblas as that is a paradies for pichpockets. If you donīt feel safe in an area, try to leave it immediately.

Apart from that, Europe is not that bad. Just be aware and if your wife is carrying a handbag make sure to put it across not just on one shoulder, same goes for any other kind of bags.

If you have further questions, donīt hessitate

Dr. Livingston:
Just got back from our cruise and we had no problems with pickpockets but, we took precautions! My husband wore a money belt under is shirt. We carried our camera bag with the zippers and latches against our body so that they could not be opened. We were on public transportation in Naples and had no problems.
