    And I wanna bring my DSLR camera with me while I tour the city. Is the crime as bad as the internet makes it sound where Im going to get robbed at every corner or will I still have my camera at the end of the day if I stay smart and in the safe areas?

    So how was it? I may be working in that area for awhile and am curious about the city. Many/any bikes?

    It was exactly as the media portrays it sans the fact that its expensive. The locals get angry when you take pictures of them, one taxi driver came at me with a tire iron. Needless to say I am glad I was only there for a day, it isnt something I ever care to experience again. If I were you I would look elsewhere for a job because there really isn't much to do.
