Larry, Thanks for the info. It is sad but true that violence has gone up in DUMA. When I first volunteered over 15 years ago I was very free to walk around and talk with the locals. I so loved it and the people. Since then I have noticed so many changes towards violence and crime (yes, RHB, it is still low compared to other places) and it so disturbs me that this is happening. I have had men follow me on their motorcycles and call to me as I walk down the street using very sexual terms. I am no longer free to walk around as before. The men ALWAYS were polite and no problems EVER before but since DUMA has grown into a city there have been many changes in the attitudes of some of the people that don't observe good behavior. I also dropped off my gfs one night and was followed and jumped by three men from their motorcycle. They had a gun to my head and I reached the gates of my secured place as the security guy held his gun to their heads. I guess the Security guy WON since they took off with only my purse. I have had so many of my filipino/a friends telling me about robberies at GUN POINT over just cell phones (being stolen from POOR people so they weren't that expensive) WHILE they were walking down the street in DAYLIGHT. I have never worn my jewelry there or anything to try to cause any problems or make me more of a target than I already am by my color and heritage. Let this be a warning to those that come to visit in DUMA or any place in this world. There are GOOD and BAD everywhere. Yes, I still plan on going back and being MORE careful and smarter about things. DUMA is worth it!
