Hey everybody, I just wanted to say that from my experience BA is a great city with a lot of friendly people, I thoroughly enjoy it. However do take precaution. I was robbed just two days ago. I was sitting at a table outside of a restaurant in San Telmo with a number of other tables surrounding mine. I was sitting across the table, face to face from my friend. I had set my bag down next to my feet and under the table while a friend and I ate. Not once while we were eating did I leave the table and we were only there for about 45 minutes. There was even an on duty police women standing on the corner no more then 40 feet from where we were sitting for the majority of the time that we were there. Just before we were getting ready to leave, I went to put something in my bag and it was no where to be found. Luckily the only valuable thing that I had in the bag was a digital camera. No one was hurt and everything is replaceable so I'm thankful for that, but do be careful. The only time that both my friend and I had diverted our attention else where was when someone asked us for directions. We both looked in the opposite direction of my bag, which again was at my feet under the table, for no more then 10/15 seconds. It doesn't take long. Just be aware of your surroundings.
