Phnom Penh II (1999)

After spending a week in Phnom Penh, I headed back to SaiGon to catch my return flight to Taipei. However, when I arrived at the land border located at Parrot's beak, the border guard informed me that I did not have a re-entry visa for Vietnam. Apparently, the security office in SaiGon had made a mistake with my visa. To make matters worse, my Cambodian visa was expiring the next day. Lucky for me the border guard had a heart and helped me arrange a ride back to the city. I was glad to get back to my friend's cousin's monestary, where everyone declared me the first "Canadian" refugee to Cambodia.
