...don't seem like anyone's reading my blog anymore..which is not so much fun...or reading maybe, but not inspired enough to post a comment ;)
but i've been enjoying writing...though have been less regular lately...maybe that's why you've given up on me!!
the last 2 weeks have been drowned in passport renewal woes...between me refusing to bribe em cops to hasten my police verification and ganpati, i lost a good 14days which is huge considering i need to leave for france on saturday night!!
it is all quite "brazil"...the innards of this system...hajjjaar files, hunched-over-table clerks, ancient ceiling fans which creak more than cool...and the ubiquitous middle-man who's willing to get you even the moon, for a price of course! from desk to desk, office to office, buliding to building...it churns...n i was just collateral damage.
from cop staion to the head office in town and back to passport office...became like a daily darshan...but no prasadam only :(
my passport is "on the way"!! speed post...god speed! n then onto the visa chakkar...there must be another way! saturday night departure slowly fading...
