Safety in Zihuatanejo

You are correct, Curbarn. Much of the trouble in Chicago is on the South and Southeast side. Those neighborhoods are a short drive to Indiana where gun laws are not strict and the Indiana areas adjoining Chicago are populated with gun shops and gun shows. That's a significant source of guns in neighborhoods that have too many already.

And just one other observation. We live on the north side of Chicago. Much as in Zihuatanejo, anywhere we want to go in Chicago, we go. On public transportation and often for evening activities. Know where you are. Be aware of your surroundings. Guard your purse or wallet. Don't be flashy, drunk or disorderly. Mind your business. Have a good time.

Not afraid of Chicago. Not afraid of Zihuatanejo.
