I hear ya Freesail,
It's all a question of perspective. I currently live in Guyana and if you rely only on the news reports etc, everyone should be walking around with armed guards and bullet proof vests....
I feel just as safe walking around Georgetown as I do in Montreal, Ottawa or Toronto (OK maybe Georgetown is safer than Toronto!).
Now based in Barbados.... and wait for it.....the boat is too!
