About gluttonous seagulls
Nick from the USA the other day was finally excluded from the black list of a well-known hotel chain. This happened already 17 years ago, but only now a long-standing dispute has come to a resolution. The story is truly incredible. Nick arrived at the hotel to attend a working conference, and at the same time brought along a delicious delicacy – pepperoni. But instead of a longtime friend, an involuntary traveler treated the voracious gulls. Leaving the product on the outdoor terrace, Nick drew a whole flock of birds who decided to have a real feast in a comfortable apartment. Returning to the room a few minutes later, the guest discovered an army of seagulls, which are freely located throughout the room. But there was no time left to deal with the problem, and he simply left the room in the hope that everything would be decided by itself. As a result, a terrible pogrom in a hotel room. That is why the guests were blacklisted. Now he had to apologize and assure the hotel chain managers that this would not happen again. As a result, a US citizen can again visit the gorgeous Fairmont Empress network. Such claims have become an increasingly frequent occurrence: hotel chains introduce a strict penal system and replenish their blacklists regularly, of course you can appeal them, but the last word still remains with the management, so it’s better to close the windows and monitor the safety of your room more closely.
Russians in Beijing
Alexey Pykhov, a Russian traveler, a professional skydiver and a famous rojumper, was detained in China. The city of Beijing has been attracting it in recent years with an abundance of high-rise buildings under construction, therefore it is from this part of the world that more than ever a man has many photos in social networks and profiles. His last jump was made from his unfinished skyscraper, located in one of the promising areas – Chaoyang. The height was 528 meters. The jump was quite successful and ended with a planned landing. The extreme attracted the attention of the public at the time of the ascent to building structures, and by the time of its descent the police were already on the way. Pykhov could even escape from the landing site, but the Beijing police managed to find and detain the criminal, and this is exactly what Alexey is according to local laws. The accusation article is a violation of public order, however, the charges from the owners of the facility, which may also have some claims against a person who violated the border of their property, are still in question. Such unauthorized jumping from any objects and public buildings is prohibited in any country in the world.
Arrested for Harassment
An outrageous and at the same time ridiculous story occurred in Dubai. A twenty-two-year-old model from Irkutsk was arrested right in the hospital ward on charges of a man. The beginning of the story is more than predictable: the girl came to work on a contract for only a month, but in the end she was bedridden due to a jump from the sixth floor of the hotel. According to her, the alleged victim actively harassed her, threatened her life and health, insulted and, in principle, constituted a threat to the fragile and young girl. The only escape route is the sixth floor balcony. However, the rich foreigner did not lose time and filed a counterclaim in court, which in the end was won in the first instance of the Emirates. As a result, law enforcement officers came for the immobilized girl directly to the ward. Forecasts regarding her health are optimistic: competent treatment will put the Irkutsk beauty on its feet. The man was detained while trying to escape from the country, and the investigation was resumed. It is worth noting that local laws are in principle extremely harsh in relation to such offenses, especially if citizens of the state themselves are involved. Verdicts are handed down fairly quickly, and punishments can turn out to be unexpectedly severe, so it’s worth observing the rules of decency and protecting yourself from such troubles.
