... and I arrived in Hanoi, we found the guy holding a sign with our names on it. The man looked representable which eased my mind a little. He asked for our passports and told us to wait. Within 30min he was back with our passports and visas. The visas looked legit and we made it through immagration. Woohoo! We made it into the country. What a relief!

About a hundred yards from shore I hear a splash behind me and look back to see that Micah has jumped into the ...
... tourists had rocked up and paid the $27. An hour after we were scheduled to be in Kep our bus to the border finally left.
The border itself was the usual sordid affair. Jaded men in green uniforms eyed our paperwork and dabbed at them with various stamps. I smiled. They did not.
