“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!
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!
