Terminal 3 Check-in

This trip report is from trip in 2008. Photos taken with Canon PowerShot S3 IS.

Arrived at airport by Taxi.  The taxi driver on this trip was greedy type. Due to him arguing about tip, I forgot the DSLR camera and lens in taxi.

Called the taxi company but reply was driver took another ride and passenger took the bag.  I had to check-in for the flight and let go of the loss.

Check-in had commenced.
