    Last week I shared a link to a cool Just The Flight infographic about 40 tourist scams to avoid this summer. As I mentioned at the time, I've fallen for a majority of those scams over the years, mostly intentionally. It's often fun to "play along" and see how they operate, assuming it's a harmless scam where at most you'll be out a few bucks and/or a few minutes of your time. When it comes to travel, the one area where I probably have my guard up most is in taxis. You're literally getting in a stranger's car, they're taking possession of all of your belongings and placing them in the trunk, and often you're in a new city so don't know where you're going, and they can take advantage of that. And that doesn't even begin to address the safety concerns over the car, driver, etc. I once had a cab driver in China that -- I $hit you not -- fell asleep at every traffic light and I had to wake him up.
