There are a lot of policemen on the streets here.  One always seems in sight.  But their attitude toward crime verges on Zen.  When we discovered our car had been broken into in Trelew on New Year’s Eve, a policewoman was right on the block.  She told us that one couldn’t file a police report, it was a holiday.

This evening in Ushuaia, a view from a different angle.  I found a watch on the street, still ticking, but the wristband broken.  I suspect a crime.  It was not hard to find two policemen, who shrugged and handed me back the watch.  The watch is distinctive.  Given sufficient resources, lost and found could move into the 21st century.  I have just visited a couple of lame lost and found sites on Google and there isn’t a Craigslist Ushuaia.
