Sometimes it's not even in a cab situation. While DW was using the WC in Naples, I was looking over the Galleria, and a friendly older fellow explained some of it's history, we went on, wandering the shops, and as we came back out, he was there, offered to take up, via the funicular up to the fort overlooking the harbor! Bice, well we paid the ticket for our ride up, he bypassed that, met us at the top, and we all grabbed a bus out to the fort. By then we realized he was steering us to a cameo shop of his own liking.. So While at the fort area, while he was occupied, we hopped the bus, went on to do our own thing, waved goodbye as he had spotted us leave.. Not happy, I'm sure.. He was a well experienced fellow.. As our Rome hotel owner told us, those Naples folks have tricky minds... Maybe a bit of gypsy?

All memorable..
