The World’s Strangest “Lost & Found” Collection

I read an article long ago about the things people leave behind on trains. Tokyo is literally crisscrossed with commuter trains that carry millions of passengers to and from various places every day.

Mystery resolved or Matilde meets James

Being a flight attendant, you don’t always work with same people, but there is a pretty young pilot (and when I say young, I think a couple years older than me) who sometimes flies with me on routes from New York to Amsterdam. We never did a lot of talking, but I knew that he…

Most times I’m the flight attendant on route from New York to Amsterdam, but my company sometimes gives me other routes to, which makes it possible to see some pretty amazing places.
