A man on the opposite platform in the Paris Metro decided he just had to show me what he normally kept tucked away. That was creepy. It wasn't in any way weird (they all look the same, no?) but most certainly unexpected.

I was drinking in a bar in Thailand. Suddenly about 40 armed police ran up the street because (we found out later) someone had just been shot dead in an apartment nearby and the gunmen was on the loose above our heads running along the rooftops, everyone along this narrow street was diving for cover as the police where pointing there gun at anyone who raised there heads. While everyone was hiding behind bars/tables a shoe shine boy just bimbled up the street trying to clean any shoes poking out from behind all the hiding places. Even the Thais were staring in disbelief at this entrepeneur.

1. The funny: The Greek mountain crochetingwoman who had the best beard I've ever seen!

2.The Scary: In a traffic jam in Rio I saw, unfortunately, a woman in the next car get mugged at gunpoint

3. The downright rude: In south Africa me and my mum were stalked by a deranged one eyed ostrich (these things are apparently actually pretty lethal!!!) on a walking trek

In Paris, I saw some men getting arrested for pickpocketing. There were about 4 men, and only 2 policemen so one ran away and was hit by a car. He kept running so he couldn't have been hurt, but it was pretty shocking to see.

Driving between Colon and Portobello (Panama), a police officer flagged us down - he was standing with 2 other officers along the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. We thought we were going to be searched (had nothing to worry about there), but after 5 minutes of Mr. Isa trying to converse in limited Spanish, it turned out that all he wanted was a ride to the nearest police station 20 minutes farther up the road. The officer kept pointing out property for sale and homes that were owned by Americans. It was a strange experience for us.

Errr, I don't know who you've been sleeping with, but I don't think they look the same at all. Why am I not surprised that this happened in the metro in Paris??

They do pretty much look the same...same as breasts pretty much look the same..slight variations,.... but the basic 'parts' are still there;)

In Rome we saw a bus load of cardinals drive by while we were walking down the street, closely followed by the pope in a black mercedes.
