I was sorry to see them have to go out that way.

Good lesson...keep your passport on your person at ALL times.

I felt bad for them too! I don't remember a cab driver ever taking off with a team's belongings before....has it ever happened? Like you said 6Borders, he should have kept his passport on him at all times.
