i have handed in many items i have found over the years. i once found a wallet that was full of cash ...

Last week I found a mobile in Hong Kong airport I took it straight to customer services who asked me to show them exactly where I found it. I hope the owner gets it back.

I would hate the thought some thieving toe rag would have pocketed it.

most taxi drivers are considered dishonest pretty much everywhere

That is very true in China

its always the right thing to do..
A few yrs ago when i arrived in doha airport i had a bottle of whiskey i had bought at heathrow to give to my boss as a gift. The rules say you cant bring any liquor in, but they will give it back to you when you leave doha. The following day i called this number they had given me, but there was no answer
swines were probably getting drunk on my whiskey
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

My experiences with Chinese taxi drivers are pretty mixed: In general I have good ones. But this is also due to my circumspection. Over in Shunde, for example, the drivers were country bumpkins. In Guangzhou they are more professional and more polite. However, I would never test their sincerity on purpose.

Yesterday, I went to the grocery near here and left a novel back on the store counter. I went there this morning and the salesclerk who had been working there last night at 8 p.m. gave it back to me at 9 a.m. Just think if YOU had to man a workplace for 12 hours, would you keep someone's tattered book in a safe place until its owner comes again? I was moved.

Maybe not?

Remember: The numbers you were given were Arab numbers. Can you read Arabic?

Strange they have alcohol in the business lounge and you can't take alcohol of your own in there while you wait for the next leg
