  • In Ermou there are thieves and knowledge of the sales Xafrizoyn unsuspecting customers. In particular, they stole all my money in a store, immediately I understood it, informed the saleswoman, the shop had cameras everywhere and the thief was there, since no one had time to leave the store. I explained to the saleswoman what had happened and that my wallet was stolen with all the money I had. I was a tourist and I had no money for food or taxis so I could leave. The saleswoman who answered me here steals all the time, I won't put the cameras on even if you call the police, I'm not obligated to. I've traveled all over the world, this has been my worst experience. There are definitely better places to visit
