I'm going to LA next week for my third time and for work I have to go to the Home Depot Center in Carson.
Now, everywhere I've travelled before I've always taken the budget option and used public transport. I've taken a look on the LA Metro and because of my previous listenings to rap music and the watchings of gritty crime films set in LA the areas I have to go to are setting off alarm bells, Compton, Carson, South Central. I'm sure that during my time in SE Asia I was in some dodgy areas but because I didnt know any better never took much notice.
Now am I being a bit of a wimp and listening to a depressing picture painted by the media or I am in fact rightly being cautious??
