It's a pity they don't warn anyone! Reminds me - when checking my luggage
in Hong Kong I was asked to look at the Xray machine and explain what one
of the items in my bag was; it was clearly a 35mm SLR. Beats me why the
guy operating the machine couldn't tell! Maybe nobody ever puts cameras
in their checkin luggage so it was unexpected. At that point I was on my
home and the camera was empty.
