So this year, I saved some money and decided to take my bicycle to somewhere in Latin America to explore the countryside and towns alone on my bike.
I needed somewhere safe from crime and safe from cars.
After doing research, there was only one country where I was unlikely to get killed by a car or robbed by criminals, and that country is... Cuba. Communist.
All of capitalist Latin America is made up of dangerous shit-holes for singly guys on a bike. In Cuba, there are few cars and fewer crimes. People are trusting and kind because... it's safe to be trusting and kind.
At all other Latin American destinations, the visitor is a prisoner of the resort and of guided tours.
Capitalism is an abject failure.
pickpockets have by far the nicest watches
