Sure it is. Anything anyone gives you is free. When I travel, I get unexpected free gifts, out of kindness. I accept them humbly and gratefully. People enjoy giving things for free, at least I do. I would hate to think there are no others like me'

I had similar experiences in Bangladesh, where a dentist replaced a filling free,
