OK. Just a few more thoughts on travel safety:
1. Leave the nice watch and jewelry at home. A nice watch implies that you have a lot of money. Wear a cheap one you can afford to lose. But, men, don’t wear a “military style” watch or you could be singled out for special treatment if they mistake you for a soldier on leave.
2. Don’t order special meals. They call attention to you. So I never order a Kosher meal on an airplane. Get vegetarian instead.
3. I love pockets and vests. That way I can carry all my stuff in them. Medication, glasses, whatever I can’t afford to lose it all fits into a pocket. Better than a purse or backpack because it’s harder to steal.
4. Don’t use your good cell phone. Buy a cheap local local cell phone and get a pre-paid SIM card for it. Cheaper, easier and if it’s stolen so what?
OK. That’s it for now. Safe traveling.
