What a heartwarming story. In this "me first" culture in which we now live, perhaps the goodwill & effort for others shown by this one woman will become more the norm here too. There is always hope!

Glad that worked out.

Here's a tip for the rest of you world travelers. Take a photo of your name and phone number as the first shot on your memory cards. If anyone finds the camera, they'll immediately know how to contact you. Most people will get at least that far and try to contact you. Even honest people are not likely to try any harder to find you.

Why doesn't she just FedEx it directly back to him?

This is news? Maybe. But headline-worthy? Naw.
