Stolen groceries in Ecuador

“That’s strange,” I thought glancing in my rear-view mirror as I parked on a rather vacant street about to walk to the nearby market.

I thought it was strange that a taxi pulled up right behind me and parked within inches of my car when they had the whole vacant street to park alongside.

Anyway, i got out of my car and without looking back I quickly pressed the electronic lock button on my key and off I walked to the open-air market in Quito, Ecuador.

As I walked back to my car with the groceries, I opened my trunk and to my surprise, the trunk was completely empty!

Prior to the produce market I had went to Supermaxi (like a walmart of Ecuador) and bought the bulk of my hotels groceries for the week, about $300 worth.All of those groceries, that once filled my trunk and back seat… were gone.

Robbed.

I figure someone had pulled up behind me and nudged open my back door before I had electronically locked my car which activates the alarm, emptied me out and left.

I imagine it was the guys in the taxi that pulled up right close to me as i parked.

T.I.E. (this is Ecuador)… better always be looking at your car when locking it before you walk away!
