Mexico City tourist alert…

5 January 2007

I have a tag for “clueless gringos in Mexico,” but “clueless Chinese in Mexico” is a new one on me.  I found this in this morning’s El Universal

A 45-year old Chinese tourist was arrested when he attempted to flee after stealing the figure of a shepherd from a naciamento from one of the annual year-end holiday displays on Paseo de la Reforma. 

 Zhwo Su Vang Kuizhen, the 45-year old Chinese citizen was detained at the corner of Paseo de la Reforma and Rio de la Plata, colonia Cuauhtémoc, with the sheperd hidden in his coat.

An origanizer of the exhibition had tipped off foot patrol officers in the area of the Asian’s intentions to take the object without paying for it. 

The foreigner was detained after trying to make off with the object, valued at about 200 pesos, and turned over to the 61st district Ministerio Publico.
