A Walk In Hua Hin
I think about notorious criminals back home and they do inhabit the same kinds of places. Call it sociopaths, anti-social personalities, criminals, prostitutes, or whatever, they seem everywhere you go. Regardless of race, color, or status in life, the heart of humankind is the same. Psychological or emotional woundedness is basically from within rather than from without.
It always helps to have a basic understanding of the criminal, psychopathic, or anti-social personality as a mental state marked by a general pattern of violation of the rights and safety of others. Since I was in a foreign country, my own strange mind swirled around watching behavior signs to spot dangerous people. Before it's too late!
I made sure I cover all scenarios. Some people worry about serial killers, but serial killers are rare. I think, even in Thailand! So, I just considered in my thoughts the ordinary dangers or risks that people commonly embrace each day. Do I have enough information about people I talk to or places I visit? What can I do to avoid or minimize the risks of my being mugged or robbed or beaten by thugs in the streets? Have I done all I can to protect my self?
Be careful. Be prepared. Be safe.
