If you're a tourist, avoid places frequented by tourists in various locations around the world!

The ever-helpful US State Department has issued a Worldwide Caution for Americans tempted to visit another country, or perhaps American hotspots like Harvard Square:

“Due to increased tensions in various locations around the world, the potential for terrorist attacks, demonstrations or violent actions against U.S. citizens and interests, the Department of State advises U.S. citizens overseas to exercise increased caution. Stay alert in locations frequented by tourists.” 

For personal reasons, I had to cancel a trip to Italy this month, including stops at La Scala and the restored Last Supper, which I last saw in April 1955. Both have been known to be frequented by tourists. A narrow escape, apparently!
