While sorting through my paperwork, I just noticed that my Vietnam entry visa is for June 24th and not June 21st. I don't know how that happened. Maybe when I was planning this trip, I had scheduled a few days here in Nanning to get the Vietnam Visa. Anyway, I will see if this causes any problem. I will express amazement at the problem and blame it on the ABriggs visa fixers. I would not look forward to sitting at the border for three days to wait for my "official" entry date of the 24th.
While walking around Nanning, I have not seen any Westerners nor did I see any on my train from Guilin. Maybe they will show up on this international train.
As I was getting settled in to my bottom bunk, I was joined by a Chinese businessman that works in Hanoi as the Network Solution Director of Huawei. His name is Glory and was fluent in English. He offered me some durian treats like mochi he had brought along. We both settled into our bunks and fell asleep until awaken by the train crew announcing that we had to get our bags together and prepare to disembark as we went through both Chinese and Vietnam Immigration and Customs. I had to quickly change out of my PJs for this inspection.
Time for bed!
