Security Measures in Ensenada

Given the lack of resources and the recent loss of a police patrol vehicle and personnel, the small rural town of Ensenada came up with a drastic decision: Dig a pit along it’s perimeter, build up barricades and remove any bush that may be used by criminals to hide and ambush people.

It was on the news last night, and though the interviewed neighbor admits it wont stop the crime problem, she said the town’s authorities decided to do so because they consider that at least it’s one more layer of protection, and that it will make patrolling the perimeter easier.

Hi Ferfal,
I'm wondering how difficult is it to travel from city to city in Argentina? Right now we kind of take for granted that we can drive from say, Seattle to Portland, Oregon, and not worry about being waylaid by attackers.

So is it safe to travel there?

From city to city?

How hard is it to fly out? Is it difficult to get a flight from city to city? How about flying out of the country?

Have most of the "rich" left the country? Where did they go? (which country)

Thank you for the amazing blog
