Subject: Re: Safety for single female, Munich and Berlin train station areas
Hi Barbara,

In Berlin it's hard to tell cause there is more than one station..... where exactly do you stay? In Munich indeed the red-light district is near the station. A (male) colleague of mine once had to stay in a hotel just opposite the station and reported that some of the rooms next door to his were rented hourly. ;) But again - where exactly do you stay? Perhaps it's not exactly in that area.

Concerning your camera - I never carry it openly around the neck but in a shoulder bag (one that looks more like a shopper). Never had problems with it and I don't look like a tourist on first sight.
