Hi All,

I have visited a no. of countries in UK & Asia. Ok, just let me share a few pleasnt experiences in some of the countries:

-When I visited London-my first time, in 2001-I was waiting at a designated place in Heathrow Airport, waiting for a friend of mine. After an agonising two hours wait, I thought better of it and hailed a cab and informed the address to the cabbie. When I reached my friend's residence, I found the door locked. To add these woes, his phone was ringing and there was no reponse. I was feeling very bad, as I had no reservation in any of the hotels and the only contact I had-at that time-was my friend, who worked for a famous University. The cabbie understood my predicament, took me to the nearby unit of YMCA. After two hours, I got a nice little room, solely with the help of the cabbie. Despite my insistence, he refused to accept anything extra, just claimed his fare and took off.

-During one of my frequent visits to Singapore, in 2006, I just left my wallet in the cab, when I got off at my hotel. The driver called the hotel desk sometime later and explained to them that he found a wallet-with some US$1000, S$250, and INR3000, along with my two debit cards and three credit cards-and that he was on his way back to the hotel to return the same. He just took the taxi fare for the distance he travelled to return the wallet.

-Last month when I visited KL, from the airport, I reached the hotel and forgotten a bottle of Gold Label Scotch (about S$80) in the back seat. Almost the same thing happened as in Singapore.

Hmmmm....I know why it still rains in this world!
