My last trip to Hong Kong, I was pickpocketed on the subway for about
$1000 HK, which is about $120 us. I keep most of my money in the waist money
belt with some spending cash in my pocket which is what I got taken. It stung
a little but didnt kill me. I must admit..:), groing up street smart in the
US and having been my 16th trip to HK, it hurt my pride more. I always
travel with half in travelers checks also, just in case I would lose
everything somehow, there would be a little protection.
