I think I was mistaken for a hooker in Milan last night!

Jump to last reply

I am a solo female traveler and ventured out to explore the city last night. I emerged out of the subway seeking a night spot I had read about in one of the tour books that was a bit dated. Within two blocks a car pulled over and the man called to me and said he was a policeman, plain clothes apparently and pulled out supposed credentials. He informed me that I was walking in a dangerous neighborhood and I should get out of there. He offered to drive me where I wanted to go but I of course declined. I headed back to the subway....it was only two blocks away. Every single car on the road in that two blocks pulled over to proposition me! I don't know what they were saying, it was Italian. I now realize that the two women I had passed on my walk were both hookers. I was dressed attractively but not with great exposure. Does anyone else have near risk experiences like this?
