There are dangers to be aware of. Some years ago a documentary was made about one of our former British colonies that has sadly gone down hill since independence. It outlined the scams and dangers an unwary tourist will be subjected to on any vacation. In the documentary the two unwary visitors were robbed of all their valuables and ended up having to sleep in the park. The documentary was conducted by Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis and is called ‘The Out-Of-Towners’. You should be able to get a copy at any good video and DVD rental store.
Just take sensible precautions and wear a money belt and enjoy !
P.S. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse for tourists in our former colony they released a documentary called ‘Deliverance’ – that is really scary !
