GENERAL TIPS

If you see or sense problems on your way, just change your route and - prepare to run or defend yourself.

Do not wear conspicuous jewelry when you are walking on the streets alone.  

Do not hitchhike, use buses or taxis instead. Do not act or look like an easy target - look confident!

Most “fights” are won before they start, and aggressors will back down if you maintain eye contact and are not intimidated by them.

Be paranoid and suspicious.  It is always better to be safe than sorry.  When in a parking lot, look at the cars parked on either side of your vehicle.  

If a male in a vehicle is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, or if you are parked next to a van, always enter your car from the side opposite the strange vehicle.  If the parking lot is particularly dark or deserted, it may be wise to go back and find a friend or guard who can walk you to your car.
