Noot’s papers from Brunei finally arrived. The American embassy said it would take about two weeks. The Brunei embassy said it would take a month. It took one month and 10 days. I suppose it could have been worse, but I think the Sultan of Brunei should give me a million dollars (USD) for having such a crap embassy.
Now I have to figure out how I’m going to pick her up. This delay was costly since it’s peak travel time in America. It doesn’t matter that it’s low season in Thailand. It’s just more expensive to go there in the summer. It’s kind of retarded.
