On my first visit to Vientiane in Laos I hired a bike and went to a little bike shop to get this lock. I noticed later that evening it had my name on it! I went back to the shop the next day and they said they had locks with lots of different names on them and that it was a complete coincidence. I went back there three more years after that and always visited them and they helped me celebrate my 63rd birthday. They were such friendly people and always made me feel so welcome.
