I plan to visit the Tarlabasi neighborhood for photography on a Sunday afternoon and am told that it is not a very safe neighborhood. That makes me feel that I should either avoid the area altogether or get a local male to accompany me. To avoid the area altogether would be a shame as I would loose the opportunity to capture the old that remains in a city that is being rapidly transformed. As there appear to be enough reviews out there that state that during the day it's relatively safe area, I am thinking that in the interest of security and to play safe, I should try to find someone who can accompany me on my visit to Tarlabasi. Not a tour guide but a local male escort, to act as sort of bodyguard. Do you know of anyone who can accompany me to Tarlabasi for a couple of hours. Any suggestions?
