  1. Excellent, Alyx my dear. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Though I must admit I don’t do the preparation and investigation that you do.

    I will look at the State Department’s travel alerts, which are helpful, what travel books say and listen attentively to people I meet me. E.g., it was from locals that I learned that crime was rampant in Argentina, Colombia and Ecuador, and what precautions to take.

    Did you ever wonder how the US could evacuate all of it’s citizens from a foreign country in an emergency, e.g., a hurricane or coup d’etat? I did. It turns out that you can register with the State Dept., and they will know to look for you.

    Keep going, little white girl.

    Love from big old white woman. xxxxxx

    • Thank you! Yeah I look at the state dept. alerts but only as an “oh” because they are still about too extreme. That’s why I am more likely to take other travelers’ accounts more seriously (and what I hope to do when I write about my travels to certain places). I do register with them it’s called STEP and I have the app. I’ll make a separate post that covers stuff like that 🙂
