I was walking my dog around the Puerto Santiago area at 5.45am this morning, like I do most days.
Every morning its peacefull, calm and tranquil. Except Saturday and Especially SUNDAY mornings.
But this Sunday morning, between around 5.30 and 6.30 am there were around 80 idiots on the rampage, in front and around the Hotel Barcelo Santiago. Normally there are a couple of dozen but today it was manic. They were screaming, throwing bottles smashing signs and breaking car mirrors.
This happends when the karaoke bar and later on the new Studio 3 close. The damage each week is getting beyond a joke and something needs to be done. I kept walking the German Sheppard for an hour watching (good job my dog is big) feeling sure the Local or Guardia would turn up and.......
they did turn up. The Locals that is, at 8.45am putting parking tickets on cars.
So if you are a Criminal and want to commit crime, may I suggest that 5 - 7am seems to be a good time to do it, as the the Police are either in a Bar, asleep or just not interested.
They know what time these bars close at the weekend, is it too much trouble for them to be patrolling the area, considering they are the only bars open at that time in this area
