Drug Dealers in Orvieto, Italy?

Jump to last reply

We were in Orvieto two weeks ago and observed some odd behavior in this Umbrian hill town. We had about an hour to wait at the train station for our train back to Rome and since it was a lovely day, we sat outside.

A few minutes after we sat down, a man sat next to us with a huge jar of what appeared to be moisturizer with a bright pink lid. That's it, no man purse, or anything else but his phone. (We were only there for the day but did have our purses and other bags.) He tried engaging us in conversation, which we ignored, but soon moved away because it was annoying.

Then two men from NY arrived and they looked like gang members. Yes, I realize I'm making some major assumptions here but my sister, who has worked in an inner-city hospital in NJ for 30+ plus years, recognized the "type." One guy said he'd like to "f" me and although there were a few people around, including some Americans who we were talking to earlier, there wasn't a cop or any type of official in site, so we became concerned and moved inside.

We were able to see them through the window where they were joined by others and they seemed to lose interest in us. One of the Americans came into the station and said that one of the guys was bragging about the fact that he's killed people and would happily kill again.

Our best guess was that this was a drug deal or some other crime taking place and that the pink jar was used to identify the guy to the NYers. Any thoughts as to what all of this was and please don't say nothing because it was quite obvious that these guys weren't there to enjoy the Duomo?
