Vietnamese customs tried to shake down Mai for some money. Her Vietnamese passport didn’t have an EXIT STAMP from when we left Vietnam on May 6, 2011. They had to go look at the computer where it showed that she had left Vietnam.
As soon as I realized that there was a problem, I had Mai give me all her money so the customs guys would have to go through me if they wanted any money. And I watched them like a hawk, so they quickly realized that they could not put any pressure on Mai without me coming to her aid and they would have to deal with me, so they painfully let her continue to the baggage area.
