No, the food won't kill you, it's just cheaper and they want you spending your money in the hotel. No, the dirty guy just does blue collar work and while he may throw out some catcalls he is not going to kill you. No, the cab driver won't take you to a dark alley and kill you. No, the cheap hotel won't collapse and kill you. No, the bathroom won't give you aids and kill you. No, the cops won't plant hash on you and then kill you. No, the bordering country won't invade and kill you.
These things won't kill you, well, most of the time they won't.
