  • You must be extremely vigilant and continually keep your eyes peeled around the room if you want to stay up to speed on everything that is going on.

 

  • Take special care with your bags and belongings, and keep them apart from the others. Remember to keep extra cash on hand in case you need it, and always wear a money belt.
