Last weekend, after the exhibition, I went for an ice cream with friends. I drove down on my scooter and parked outside, chatting away about a theme party we were planning, we saw a Fancy Dress shop and got distracted. After a mini fashion show we came outside only to find my scooter gone and another one parked in its place. Slightly panicking, I asked the guys outside the shop if they saw any Police and they said "yes, few minutes ago". Luckily the friends I was with were just driving past in their car so I stopped them and got in. We drove towards the Traffic Police 'office' (a piece of land hidden behind a tall wall) hoping to catch them on their way back. No such luck, once we reached I saw my wee bike and had to go claim it.
Foreign, no license or paperwork on me, I kept my mouth shut, gave my friend money, and let him do all the talking. A few minutes later I was told to unlock the bike and go, having given money to the traffic police guy, the truck driver and some other dude.
