    ... a bit closer to the other country than said country would approve so mishaps do happen.

    We show up at our hotel, Hotel Kapok, about 3 p.m. We have to fill in a form with our passport numbers and such and give it to the desk clerk to get our room key.

The screener asked us what sort of knives or swords we were carrying. It took a few minutes to demonstrate that the suspect weapons were not in our luggage, and we were released. The shuttle to the hotel would not arrive for about 40 minutes, and it was late, so we decided to get some fast food here at ...
