comment Internet speed in Nha Trang Vietnam?
In general Internet Cafes in Vietnam are faster and cheaper than in Cambodia or Laos. I don't remember any specific places in Nha Trang, but you should be able to find a place with decent connectivity. As for Wi-fi and mobile internet, I don't know because I don't bring my own devices when I travel.

comment Advantages of traveling from Lima to Cusco by bus vs. plane?
I agree with Mark. If you want to visit and experience Peru, take the bus. If you just want to visit Machu Picchu, then fly. I met several people in Cusco that flew in and had problem with the altitude. Taking the bus does not mean you wont have any problems with it but its a bit less likely. If you are short on time, I think it's better to spend a day on a bus and be okay than flying and may be sick for days.

comment Can you receive an Australian passport stamp if you ask?
All good and welcome information, but it doesn't answer the actual question. From my experience at other borders where one usually doesn't get a stamp. If you ask nicely you can get one.
