    Maybe next time just use a zoom lens and do it without their knowledge...

    The younger Chrisman had been photographing the area and approached a woman in the store about snapping shots of her daughters. He offered them $25; they agreed, and he took a few pictures of the teenagers' faces.
    At that point, the Chrisman family says, the mother demanded more money from Gary Chrisman, he refused, and she called authorities, alleging that he had tried taking pornographic pictures of her daughters.
    Both men were arrested, but the police report does not say why the elder Chrisman was arrested.

    I wonder why there is no mention of any involvement by the US Consulate.

    You need to be wary when you leave the good old USA because the rules change.
