Standing out, as far as I have seen, is not really recommended here... Good advised on this thread that I have also followed: Don't always use the same route nor the same time... Unrelated a bit but there have been news stories regarding robbed and killed persons who always used to drive the same route the same days/times... I think the same goes for walking for any expat...If you stand out, he will probably recognize you the next time you'll meet in the street. He might try again if you are walking alone, that time better prepared with the hindsight of what happened the first time.
In all my years in the gym.... never saw anything bad happen, and if you use one good things will happen to your body and mind...and of course the ever present eye candy..........Most gyms in BC just charge 50 pesos/day. Very affordable. I do enjoy seeing people when I walk, but God may not give me a second chance on this one. So yea, I'm going to alter my routes and only go where there are people and sidewalks. I will also use the gym.
I was buying a car recently....the seller wanted cash.... $600,000 pesos or so
I said - No - let's go to the bank
I withdrew - gave to him and we drove home....
His problem, not mine
All went well - nevertheless
When I walk I walk with my 3 dogs and usually 2 street dogs andI'm blingless but the dog is a great idea!
Mine is inside my pants. Alwyas makes a little bulge..lol. But dog walking i wear a baggy tshrt, old tennis and shorts or sweats. Many people have asked me if I have a gun in my wasteband.I wonder if a "hip bag" indicates you have something to give- up to the bad guys? I have never used one of those things (exposed) for that reason.
You havent been in SD lately. Seems like every guy carries either a shoulder bag or some style of backpackI think they outlawed fanny packs for men a few years ago, if not they should have.
And the mail purse has not caught on here like in Europe, which too is a fashion blessing
