Another good security tip is to carry a false wallet...get some library cards and your membership card from the local video store back home and you know that kind of stuff that you can afford to lose. Put enough cash in it that an armed thief won't be too pissed off about like maybe a couple thousand P and smile as you pass it to whomever is robbing you. I know it's hard to conceal other ID and money on tropical summer dress but you could even consider having secret pockets put into shirts and shorts for a very low price by a local tailor. Do me a favour though and never keep money in a shoe or sock. I had a pedicab driver give me a 20 P note that he had obviously kept in his socks. It stunk so bad, I had to leave my wallet out to air out for over a week from keeping the bill in it for just a couple of hours. I thought i was going to have to throw my wallet out at one point.
