Hi - I am heading to BA next week, and excited for my first time to South America. I do like to travel a lot, but in the past, I've mainly done Western Europe. As my first time to South America, I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on general safety and security in BA for a single guy exploring on his own. Of course I would follow the regular precautions of not carrying large sums of cash, trimming my wallet, not looking too touristy, but wondering if there was anything additional I should be aware of in BA. I do hope to have my nice DSLR camera with me to take photos (I normally keep it in my backpack and only take it out when I need to) - do you think thats fine or a bad idea? As I mentioned, first time in South America, dont know what to expect, and as a lone traveler, just wondering what the folks on this forum have to say about BA. Thank you in advance for your comments.
