Ok folks, this has been drilled into our heads everytime we cross a border or enter an Airport, NEVER, and I mean NEVER take a package or bag from someone to transport with you. You are putting yourself at huge risk of ending up in jail. Not just if it drugs but endangered species items ( ivory, tiger nuts, blood dimonds, dirty money and antiques to name a few) can cause you the some grief.
NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE OFFERED, no amount of cash is going to bail you out of jail, once you get pinched, the guy that you were doing the "favor" for is long gone and you will be shit our of luck!!!! PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS WARNING!!!

This is a true thing! You could meet a realy nice person while riding the Eurail or plane into another country, and just when you´re about to cross the border or land, they ask you to hold their daypack and WHAM! Say good-night Gracie! Tell the authorities that you just met the person and they´ll think, "sure, whatever you say, chief."

They´ve heard it all before my friends, so be extremely cautious and only trust the people that you really know while crossing borders .
