I was robbed while shopping at the Central Market in Fez during Ramadan.  It wasn't a huge amount of money, a couple of hundred dirhams at most.  After making a purchase, I was writing a note on the envelope containing my money and young guy reached over my shoulder from behind and snatched the envelope away. 

People noticed, a couple of guys ran after him, but there was no chance of recovering the envelope.  I don't get hysterical over a couple of hundred dirhams disappearing, but I am much more aware now that people are watching me.  An incident like that takes away the innocent belief the street is safe in broad daylight with other people around.
