The purpose of this message is not to scare but to inform. Take from it what you will..

I was in Rossio square with my wife as night approached. A talented young lady had flaming batons and was twirling them all around. Naturally i had my camera out and began to snap some photos. I should have kept it very brief because as it turned out her "pimp" came out from around the corner and wasn't happy. Not dangerous looking, just rough around the edges and looked like he hadn't slept in 2 days. He began yelling at me in Portuguese and tried to lead me back towards her, presumably to give her money. I tried to shrug him off with the "confused tourist" routine and he again tried to lead us back over there. We finally walked off and he had a mouthful for us as we did

I don't know what woulda happened if he laid a finger on me but i'm glad he didn't . maybe this is common sense.....maybe not? anyone else have something similar happen?
