Beware of being mugged in Cape Town Sep 11, 2007
Cape Town is a lovely city, if your street wise...lurking around most corner is someone looking for tourists to mug.

I spent a month in South Africa and anytime I went into Cape Town city, there was either of the following:

-someone begging us to give them money


- people approaching us demanding us to hand over all our valuables

There is a big difference between these types of people, the first being the type of people that are just genuinely poor and really are telling the truth when they say they want the money for food and the second being the type of person who is more than likely carrying some form of weapon(usually a knife) and demanding the money off you.

Always carry money in a separate pocket to the rest, carry an amount that you won't be affected by if you part with it, its called "mug money", they normally will just take it and not look for anymore and run.

They normally are not violent, unless you become violent towards the mugger!

Beware of the muggers!!
