    GH FUO, whenever you arrive in a hotel, first read about the disclaimer and have a good understanding. Any Hotel will choose to met you half-way or NOTHING on any missing item so be wise and use your Safe deposit box and put your car under lock and key.

    It could be an inside job hence the need to exercise caution before speaking publicly about it. But why always Togo?
