Asmara, Eritrea is the World's Safest City

Posted in the Ethiopia Forum

The Eritrean capital of Asmara is the safest city on Earth:

"The country was awash with Soviet and American weaponry, yet crime was almost unknown. The most dangerous thing that could happen to you in Asmara after dark was to stumble on a piece of broken paving. Ironically, a capital that had witnessed so much violence was blessed with an extraordinary tranquility, it breathed peace in time with the cicada's rhythmic rasp. Asmara was certainly the only African city in which not only was I regularly offered lifts by strangers, but I accepted them without hesitation."

"What would you tell them to avoid?
Nowhere I think Asmara must be the safest city in the world. I never feel frightened. Local and foreign women can walk the streets at night without fear, and local people do not hassle foreigners."
