Is South America Scary?
Thanks to Western media, we learn that everywhere except home is unsafe and scary. Especially Central and South America – right? The only thing that happens there are landslides, government coups and earthquakes. Crime is outrageously high and people fear for their lives.
Well, yes that’s true some places. But why would you ever move there? It would be like going on vacation in the bad part of your city, or retiring in a toxic waste area in your country. Every country has its share of good and bad places and people. Cuenca, Ecuador is our home, and it has less crime and less murders than Halifax – the sleepy capital of Nova Scotia (that’s a province in Canada BTW).
Watch this video, and tell us what you think. Should parents be bringing their children to such a scary place?
