The motorcyclists drive back to the stopped bus and ask for the tent. The bus driver agrees to return the tent only if the woman comes with them. She agrees, and the man retrieves the identification from the tent. Having taken the card, the man returns the tent and the woman leaves again with him on the motorcycle.
