Hey Lou.C. (but I'll call you Louisa) What is your problem honey? I read some of your other comments. Here's some of my favorites:

"BALI IS SH*T" (Bali, one of the most beautiful , amazing places on the planet is hardly sh*t - but maybe your attitude is. That's VERY possible. Please stay out of Bali, it doesn't need you)

"AUSTRALIA -your home country-IS FULL OF WARM BEACHES, CANADA IS FULL OF CRACKHEADS" (something close to that)

'AMERICAN'S ARE F*CKING BASTARDS"

Hey Louisa, you ever hear of manners, you ever hear of having some class? What were you , raised by Dingo's in the outback? Where I come from you're just White Trash with a toilet for a mouth. I only read 3 or 4 of your comments. Do you insult a different country/group of people in each one? IMO, you're just a 21 yr old brat that doesn't have a clue how to be a world citizen. Please don't leave OZ and pollute the world with your ignorance and stupidity (and GROW UP !!!). Thank God you're not my daughter cause I'd be wanting to shoot myself every night. TTYL human trash can, zoom PS. Hope other member read your "body of work/garbage". Where's the monitors around here?

I am very tempted to delete the above response, but am leaving it as an example of what is considered NOT acceptable in the open forums. Lou.c. made her apologies for her comments prior to the above posting and the discussion is closed. The thread itself will remain open to comment as long as those comments are relevent to the topic - not a platform for personal attacks. Any further disparging replies will be deleted.

Moderators are quite well aware of the what is being said in the forums, but are allowed to choose the way particular issues are handled. Once again, I recommend reading the Forum Rules before posting in this or any other thread.

I am writing from Bolivia. They said in the local news that they found the bodies of the Austrian tourists today in La Paz. They were murdered by a gang band that pretended to be police officers, and two members were arrested, but unfortunately the band leader (Ricardo Milan) has not been caught yet.

We are shocked and sad by the news. Bolivia is in general, a safe and pacific country. We recommend tourists do not take taxis in the Cementerio area of La Paz (where buses from Copacabana arrive), and if you do so, try to find one that has a telephone number painted in the car (they are called radio taxis). Or ask the bus company from Copacabana to refer you to a well known taxi company.

Friends, it will happen, its certain for us all at some point, but let us move on to better things.

I fully sympathise with those who have lost loved ones or lost great travel friends but we must not let this diminish our travel aspirations..

Im planning and hoping to travel in the near future as well and this is the last thing i need so folks keep your heads up and your ears and eyes peeled for trouble wherever you are.

It may happen, more chance of it not happening to you so dont be trying to cross bridges untill you come to them! Deal with each situation as you come to it, is my philosophy.

You can do it guys!!!
