¡Por fin!

The dratted passport, along with the relevant visa, arrived safely. I had visions of unscrupulous couriers nicking it (stealing passports can be pretty remunerative), and me having to negotiate a bureaucratic maze trying to get a new one. File a police report. Fill out hazaar forms. Grease countless palms, as the weeks go by. "But sir you are not resident. How can we do police check? Why don't you go to US and apply from there?" Give in finally, call in some favors high up and actually accomplish something in, oh, say a month or so.

Be not anxious ...

*Sigh* Lots to offer up ... :)
