When we collected our luggage at Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) we found there to be a Cambodian Security label on Margaret's bag. Interesting, we thought. Wonder what that means?

Well, when we got to our HCMC hotel we found that we could no longer open the combination lock on Margaret's case. (ie the correct combination no longer worked.)

Above, two engineers take less than a minute to hacksaw their way through the padlock.

No idea what the Cambodians were looking for, whether they found anything, whether they took anything or why they bothered putting the padlock back if it was stuffed.



  1. they were looking for one of those hotel cars.
    One has turned up missing......
    (Margeret? Do you still have that turtle?)

  2. That's the funny thing - they left the car in the case...

  3. sometimes it seems they just want you to know they're watching...
