I remember walking through the door at home my eccentric uncle was laughing off his chair at the news (he doesn't like Americans and he fought in Tripoli before).

Did a refresher and my AOW with them.
I find them to be very professional, very safety conscious and a lot of fun to be with.

Sure ppl here can treat others differently due to colour/ethnicity i.e. bankers smiling to us more often than they would local people; but i've never heard about taxi drivers ripping people off.
