Strolling the tree lined trails is a peaceful, mind clearing activity during the hours of light, but once the sol sets it's a completely different story.
Bandits prowl the hedges, eater to pounce any fanny pack or wallet bulge they see. It's not money they are after, no, a few bills of paper will only get you so far. What they are after is identity.
They'll snatch your i.d and after a few quick twists of the thumb on ink will have your social security number and mother's maiden name. Then before you can stumble to the nearest residence, thumb in hand, they'll have jumped back to the bushes with their G6 internet and have started ten new accounts in your name.
It is a mixed bag of beauty and danger, walking the paths, but that's why so many thrill seekers are drawn to it like bull fighting and whore mongering. But if you play the game right you can come out on top safe.
