Hen hao (very good) taxi ride

Leave a comment

Mr. Li gets the good Olympic citizen award.  I left my new Nike sweatshirt in his taxi following a ride to the Emperor Hotel.  After a couple days of searching my Chinese colleague tracked him down and learned he had delivered the item to the hotel thinking I was a guest there.  When she told him otherwise, he retrieved it and delivered it to me at work clear across town.  He refused to accept any compensation or even a tip for his trouble.  I fell over myself trying but he said no.  Mr. Li told me he wanted to do the right thing and treat foreign guests to the Olympics well.  Xie Xie, Mr. Li.
