Today I received my Bolivian visa. Do you think they read my facebook status?
- Estimado Consulado de Bolivia: Tiene mi dinero; tiene mi pasaporte. Quisiera mi visa para que visitar su pais. Gracias ~ Micaela.
They had held my passport hostage for six weeks now. It’s now too late now to get my Paraguay visa prior to travel (damn you! Bolivian consulate), but I was lucky enough to get an appointment tomorrow at the Atlanta office of the Brazilian consulate. After all, I leave in only 6 days! At least I know that our government isn’t the only one that suffers from effective inefficiency. I’ve heard that the Brazilian consulate isn’t the easiest to deal with either. Maybe it’s just all government workers who have a permanent chip on their shoulder.
