My wife and I are spending 4 days in DF in January (for my 30th birthday -- whoo-hoo!). I've been reading up vigorously on how to enjoy the city safely: don't take the green taxis, don't dress like a tourist, be vigilant, etc.
I have one little question. For years, I have documented all of my foreign travel with my video camera. It's now a bit of a tradition, and Mexico City seems like such a panoply of colors and sounds that the video could really capture the spirit of the place.
So, given that there's no better "I'm rich: rob me" flag than a video camera, are ther eplaces where I can relatively safely use it? Are there precautions I can take? I can accept that I might have to leave it at home, but I'd much rather bring it with.
Thanks for any advice!
