    I generally refuse to use a Tuk Tuk because of their scams but I guess this is one that even a tuk tuk hated can be done by. I guess a little knowledge of what they are like helps as well. Personally if i was in theat situation i was have given him some cash but would have bartered it 555

    G4 have you ever read a book called "There A wierd Mob" if not find a copy somewhere, written by Nino Calloto??

    Story of a big Itilian who comes to Sydney. In a fight he just "Dong them on the head and they sleep" or "hug them till they sleep" and "Just sit on them".

    There is a series of books, and they made a movie of it as well.

    Well done C1 finding that. The only thing is he is tall and skinny, in the origional books, and with the drawings, he is massive, 6'6'' and 2 pick handles accross both his sholders and belly.

    I think from memory, there were 5 or 6 books, that cronicaled his life in Aust. I know one was called "Gone Fishing". They were all good reads and told the life story of many imigrants in those days, real basic Aussie culture, being taught, and outside culture being learnt, and assimilated.

    In the clip he goes to the Marble Bar in Sydney, it was beneath the Hilton, when they redeveloped the site, it was deemed a national treasure, and had to be cut up and stored, then rebuilt in the new building.

    4 years later, there was only 25% of it left. It is still there today in a smaller scale.
