  1. It goes without saying, that one should be careful when catching a taxi on the street in Mexico City. Kidnappings are not unusual. I used to do some heavy profiling, standing on the side of the road looking at the drivers of some 50-60 cabs that passed by before I actually picked one which I thought had a driver that looked ‘trustworthy’, simpatico and not inclined to kidnapping.

  2. That’s good advice, Alina, thank you. I will be careful when in Mexico or in fact anywhere where you have recommended, because I know my safety is my own responsibility and I will not hold the bbp liable for any kidnapping or robbings I might experience.
