Addis is possibly the least 'African' capital south of the Sahara (short of the capitals of South Africa and perhaps Namibia) and as such a fairly easy introduction to African city life. For all intents and purposes, Addis is fairly, but obviously not completely, safe. The usual caveats apply, with the difference that most westerners will stand out on the ...

The main incompatibility is indeed that Australia requires the use of a top tether strap, so all child seats sold in Australia are built with this in mind, and all cars sold in Australia after the mid-1990s will have the attachment hooks for the tether strap. Also, Australian child seats use the adult seatbelt to attach the bottom of the seat to the car. ...

The reason is relatively straightforward: June - September is Monsoon time, the prevailing wind switches from southeast to southwest and brings massive amounts of rain and humidity. Goa is on the western coast of India, so the resulting wave heights are significantly greater and the waves are much more forceful. This means that both the waves and the ...

The 'Child Safety' page has some information on this. Mostly it says that child safety restraint systems (CRS) get approved for traffic and/or airline use by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but that FAA does not control all of the approvals. And stresses to check that the CRS has the label: This restraint is certified for use in motor ...

After doing a web search, most of the seasonal references to Goa during the "off season" months (which are the monsoon months) are discussing the heavy waves and more constant and stronger on-shore wind. Coupled with the rains of the monsoon and the normal oceanic issues (rip tide, etc) and the ocean is usually marked off limits. While some (younger) ...

It turns out it was a scam to garner money from me, what I wasn't expecting though was that my "friend" was the scammer. She was shaving her hair to tell people she had cancer She was mutilating herself to say she was agressed She took some drug to make her breasts make milk so she could say she got pregnant from rape She had proper dressing to hide her ...

Purely speculation, but maybe it's what's under the water. In Japan, east-coast beaches close in September. The waves are no problem, there are very few rip currents, but there are a lot of jellyfish in the fall.

Inside vs. outside the boulevard périphérique isn't a relevant criteria. There are some posh neighbourhoods outside it and some dodgy areas in Paris itself. I would not necessarily recommend any place in the Greater Paris area to visitors but most of the areas immediately beyond the périphérique should be perfectly safe to stay or walk at night.

There are three major areas of risk in South Africa at the moment, I will devote a paragraph to each... The risk associated with the Ebola outbreak is overwhelmingly prominent. Two weeks ago the South African government introduced travel restrictions and a general advisory was issued by the Department of Health. The next area of risk is the rampant crime ...

CARES Child Aviation Restraint System is designed specifically for aviation use for children age 1 and older who weigh between 22 and 44 pounds. These youngsters are old enough to be in their own seats, but are too small for the seat belt alone to protect them and provide the safety they require during airplane travel. Their bodies cannot ...

I live in Moscow and my colleague is American. I do feel a little awkward talking on public transport systems. It feels more comfortable to be silent and blend in. The Moscow times reported two Americans found dead in the city last weekend but that could be coincidence. We have been here since June and things are pretty relaxed. Keep an eye on the foreign ...

Since all the romanian politicians agreed Romania does not need motorways/freeways, these are short and far apart. So, plan for an average of 60Km/h (37mph) on most roads. The main roads between larger cities were upgraded to expressways in the last 10 years but since it is an upgrade, you'll often find bicycles, tractors, horse-drawn carriages on them. If ...
