thieves spot valuables

provincial people steal in Shanghai;
happens places frequented by foreigners.
understand thieves work in pairs.

one spots you, alerts accomplice.
accomplice then distracts you, while
thief opens bag and steals.

happened twice in public bathrooms.
now, all valuables under lock.
