Thanks for link. I'll have a look.
I was just saying what I saw most of the times. Myself I never used them. Probably the guys (not one!) wearing old type (chineese-type, bizaar-type) money-belts really were nuts or just wanted to save money on better ones. :)
But believe me - many of tourists wear thick purses on the belley, digital cam in hands...
It was just my observations.
: Maybe that bulge in the front of the person pants wasnít a money belt!
: Maybe the guy was just well endowed or just happy to see his woman.
: Unless you pack your money belt full of one-dollar bills, no one will notice you are wearing one.
: The money belt is worn under your pants. This makes it impossible for pick-pockets to get to your money.
: I know of many people who had their wallets lifted or their purses stolen, but I never heard of anyone robbed when wearing a money belt.
: If you donít believe me take it from an expert, Rick Steeves.
: Rick Steves is an authority on traveling in Europe. This is what the guy does for a living.
: For great advice on security see:
