Hello from a troubled region

Post by casro » Fri Jan 19, 2018 7:23 pm

Hello,
I come from Latin America. I personally live in an outstanding place however not all Latin America is as safe as my home Town.

We drive erratically and there are crime plagued areas in some places. I travel all around the world, Latin America included, for work and I have a decent amount of border, hotel and international security experiences to share.

Traveling through bad lands also turn each one of us into ‘smart’ creatures as we call ourselves, those who know how to go by completely unharmed by crime and local danger even when it surrounds us.

Some of the grey man concept I read here is a fair description of the natural caution that we all travelers of this region instinctively develop as we grow.

The world is a dangerous place. Period. There are predators out there. No questions about it. I, maybe not humbly and for that I apologize, am under the impression that while some people who never visited places reported as ‘dangerous’ across Latin America call it shitholes, those living here are better prepared do detect and counter petty threats in a daily basis.

We find most of the international news about our region greatly exaggerated. I understand that they may not be. It is just that we get used to not get stressed about living in ‘survival’ mode making us living proof that humans adapt just fine in any environment.

I hope I can share as much as I am learning from you.

Welcome. Direct experience is the best teacher. Probably second best is second-hand experience. Since I don't intend to end up in dangerous situations just for practice, I look forward to learning from you.
