My first and only time in Italy was an eye opener. I had been informed that the denizens could be equally if not more conniving than some of our own local talent.

To save myself the bother, in Milan, I would take the opportunity to walk around rather than take a cab. It really is a small city compared to Indian cities and one can really walk all the way through.

however, one evening I had to take a taxi and proceeded to board one with all kinds of preconceived notions. As we neared our hotel ( I kinda knew the area by then) the cab driver, guided by an ultra modern GPS system, took a wrong turn, and then a circuitous route to get to my hotel.

I thought twice before mentioning to my cabbie that we could have taken a shorter route. But, before I could do it he himself cursed the GPS (it was wonderful to hear that :-) and offered a refund of 2 Euros on the bill.

I, out of relief or gratitude, was happy to leave it with im as a tip as it once again reinforced the idea of basic goodness of people all over the world.

I then proceeded to Rome, but that is another story ;-)
