Well Sir Cavok. We will just have to disagree on this one. Working and living here I just find it very livable. I am as cautious here as I am in Miami. I am of course not involved with people (Ex-pats or anyone else) that are involved in or do things that put themselves in harms way. I here stories about crime and violence via the news so I am aware of various crime trends. OMG, there was I gentleman here reporting that he had to fire a gun through an open window to scare off ladrones on more than one occasion, I have had no such problems.... ever!
