Afterwords, we headed to the find a share taxi. After bargaining down we got the ride for $4 each. We got in a car and realized that there would also be a woman and 5 kids, plus they were still trying to find others!!! One of the kids started to puke while we were waiting and that was enough to make us get out. So, the driver finally after several attempts by at least 5 drivers, we agreed to leave. We headed off, Becky, Me, a small child on my lap and this other guy in the back and 4 children the driver and the mom in the front, and of course our driver! After about 5 mins down the road we stopped at another guest house were there were to foreigner's waiting for a ride. Crazy as this sounds, the driver was expecting them to fit in the back and replace the one guy for two!!!
The next day:
Around 8 A.M. we had a wonderful Tuk-Tuk driver come take us on our day long journey to explore a cave, visit a sea salt farm, take us to Kep for lunch and then to the boarder of Cambodia and Vietnam ($25 USD). This was a great way to see the country. We had a wonderful guide who's English was pretty good. He told us as much as he could about each area. We enjoyed a nice lunch with him at a little crab spot in Kep...right on the water(3 people for about $16). From there we headed to the boarder. About 2 km way from the VN he stopped and called some buddies to take us the rest of the way, Ha Tien VN. The motorbike drivers guided us through the boarder crossing and took us to the bus stop. We parted ways with hugs...like we all were great friends.
