Coming from Merseyside I found Port Moresby and Lae quite tame compared to Liverpool 8.

One summer a lion escaped from a circus during the school holidays but it was rescued before the kids ate it alive.

I have lived in different cities in different countries. In my experience one should always build up ones local knowledge of which places in the various cities are safe and which places are not.

I spent over four years living at Bomana on the outskirts of Port Moresby. We frequently travelled into POM both in daytime and at night. I did not think that Port Moresby was any more dangerous than other city.

There are parts of Dublin that I would hesitate to visit late at night. In Rome one could get ones pocket picked in broad daylight if not forewarned.

Local knowledge can be a great help in keeping yourself safe. One also wonders if some rascal attacks are attempts at revenge for unpaid wages or some such grievance.
