hey lefties

I really like Mindanao. I have said it before that Mindanao island gets a bad rap because of the government and the bad Muslims fighting for years. Most of the fighting is in the southern most sections of the island. I would never walk out in front of a car on purpose , so I would never move into the war zone like Marawi or Sulu areas. Most of the island is very safe. I lived in the Davao area. I never walked down back alleys or walk by myself at night. Got to use common sense.

Just my opinion. I lived there for a year. I am coming back to Mindanao again.

What are your guys feeling on Zamboanga City?

I went there in '12 to meet my wife's grandmother before we got married, then again in '14, I think, for a family reunion.

In '12, the wife didn't want me to go because she said that it was dangerous for me. The second time, she eased up a bit, and I was able to go outside a bit more.

hey yakc

i agree with lefties. You are getting to far south for comfort. Zamboanga City? I would definitely stay in a group there. Not wonder off by yourself. keep low profile. I wouldn't go there. I have always stayed in the central part. Very safe. You are getting to close to areas like Jolo.
