"Leave me alone!" I shouted at several decibels louder than a gaggle of about thirty hungry-for-new-blood london taxi, "I'm walking and I DO NOT need a taxi!". I stormed outside into the oppressive sun and began marching down the highway leaving a melee of confused men in my wake.

This is only based on my observation and is pretty much just to try and make it as simple as possible. A noble job depends on the people themselves.

The intentions must be for good and while performing the job, there should be no stepping on another person (metaphorically) or taking advantage of anyone in any way.
Of course you are going to want to buy souvenirs for your friends and family and keepsakes to remember your trip, but don't over-do it.

Instead of buying every piece of hand-made artisanry you see, take pictures to remember them and share with friends and family. Save your money and buy things you will really need such as toiletries and supplies for your project.

I should have taken my eyes off the pastries, but I couldn't. A morning break with coffee and pastry; followed by an afternoon break with wine and pastry; and, of course, pastry for dessert at dinner - I carried memories of those pastries home on my hips.
