Ba Hon and stopped for a photo opportunity at the canal crossing there. Lots of boats, vendors and the usual frenetic activity but we also stopped for a chat with a group of children and a young lady by the name of Ngan, who spoke very good English and turned out to be a hotel receptionist for a beachside hotel just outside Ha Tien. Tim has a magic trick up his sleeve for just such occasions and regaled the children with it, though Ngan was pretty switched on, sussed out the trick immediately and called his bluff. Smart lady. You can see the group's faces above as they watch Tim going through his magic trick routine.
