Alasdair is a young red-headed Scot with a bit of a thirst for adventure.? This experienced Globetrotter’s travels have finally brought him to the the Canadiana!
Like a lot of our backpackers, Alistair has already circumnavigated the earth! But he is no ordinary tourist!
He seems to have that Scottish penchant for getting into trouble! Take his China adventure, for example.
He landed in Beijing in time for the Olympic Games and somehow managed to get his hands on some tickets (quite a few actually) to a very popular event. (Don’t ask how!)
To a good Scots lad like Alasdair, this is an opportunity like manna from heaven! So he set off for the sports venue to “scalp” the tickets!
Tickets to popular events are severely limited and fans are willing to pay a lot more than the “face value” of the ticket!
The only problem is that “scalping” (selling tickets for an inflated price) is illegal!
Enter the Beijing Police! And they cart Alasdair off to jail!
If a person had to choose a country in which to be arrested, China with it’s Communist Regime and appalling Human Rights record, would not be near the top of the list of choices!
After several hours of threats and interrogation Alasdair was finally released? Did he learn his lesson?
Actually, he returned to the sports stadium. He still had some tickets to sell!
He’s a wild one, this crazy red-headed Scot!
Tickets? What tickets?
