Orange squares of possibility

by at 9:42 pm

Today we returned to the Swiss consulate in New York, where we had dropped off our passports last week.  Both times we were there, the receptionist, switching back and forth among many languages and computer/telephone/person standing in front of him, was really confused as to what we wanted.  It seemed that our visas were not being processed in quite the standard way. Fortunately, a very nice woman was taking care of our visas and somehow knew immediately who we were and what we needed.  So with hardly any trouble beyond initial confusion, we were handed back our passports this morning with bright orangey-yellow visas pasted inside.  I even got my silly regular white self-addressed envelope back (they asked for a self addressed envelope; I didn’t know what it was for!) but Seth did not (see Seth’s post, Visa Approved, if you have no idea what I’m talking about).  Another bureaucratic hurdle hurdled.  Check!  I put them immediately into a little ziplock baggy to protect them from the rain.

    That is just so Classic Jackie that I completely cracked up. :)
