I don't think you will change the driver

I don't think you will change the driver like that, I most likely would go out of the taxi too. Tourist are taken advantage of, so the only way to go is to stand up to it when you can.

keep going

i don't think you were wrong, from your perspective. however, i might have bartered a moment or two to see if the driver was stating a high price to negotiate down from, as you cannot go up once you have stated a price, but you can always go down.

Bravo for you! I was taken advantage of in just that way and thank you for thinking of all of us in the driver's future!

Leave education to educators

The situation you describe is a transaction, not a cultural exchange of views. Guy's trying to make a buck the only way he knows. Take it or leave it. Save the pedagogical insights for those who need it - your kids.
