I have lived here for 8 years and have never been the victim of theft or any other personal harm. I live in Recoleta, but travel all over the city on public transportation.


Adding an anti-theft story, I dropped my wallet on the ground under my sidewalk table at Las Cabritas restaurant, the waitress picked it up and saved it for me, I called my friends (I was already in a taxi to a different part of the city when I realized) and they picked it up- nothing missing out of it. Very very lucky as I was stupid not to realize it was gone, but hey, for all the times I read posts about the dishonesty and people trying to get as much from others as they can get away with, there are exceptions!!!
