Loot. Very very small amounts of loot

Ceramic beads. Four of them have llamas depicted on them. Amelie is to beans what Harry is to ceramic beads. I bet you can get these at Glebe markets or something, but these I carried back with my own bare hands.

Anything to declare?
Yes, carved llama bones.
They look abit rune-like.
That's what I thought.
No worries, sir, just step into that little room so a stranger can stick their finger up your bum.
Really? Can't I just give you my number or something?

I tried to steal this. I really did. This is in Hong Kong airport. It wasn't called "Coffee lovers" but it should have because I am a naming genius. They have large displays of sculptures throughout the airport. Halifax had stuffed animals including a polar bear, a lemming and a snowy owl.

Speedy - not to let the truth get in the way of good story, but that sculpture is one I saw coming back through HK airport - Hazman stole the piccies which is of no relevence 'cept that he can't answer questions about it.
It is ceramic.
The two faces are slightly different colours, representative a an HK drink which is a mixture of coffee and tea.
Pretty cool with the balancing and the fluidity, huh?

Maybe this boy has a talent for fiction after all...

Oy! I went to friggin Hong Kong airport to and I saw that goddamed sculpture with my own eyes.

Sure, I stole the photo from you, but I can still answer the question.

It is ceramic. Not like the ceramic Pip is talking about but a totally different type of ceramic.
A much better ceramic than her incorrect answer indicated.

Well, if you're going to plagiarise...
