Letters from Thailand











{May 24, 2007}   Things to do in Paris on a Beautiful Day?

Right now I could be strolling along the Seine or sitting, watching the world pass by in a pavement cafe.  Instead, I am sitting in an apartment waiting for DHL man to deliver some very important documents.  Life can be such a bummer.

It’s got me wondering if people ever think about the impact of their daily, mundane duties on the lives of people like you and me.  In this case, if I do not receive these documents, I cannot get my visa for Thailand processed in time, which will result in having to pay (given my finances) a small fortune to a so-called budget airline to change my flight to England (where I currently live), giving me even less time to pack and, even worse,leaving me with no time to organise a farewell party with my friends.

Actually, the problem does not lie with DHL.  If the post office in England had been as efficient as it should be, then I would have received everything last Saturday, before I came here.  I could have then gone to the Thai Embassy on Monday and right now I could be strolling along the Seine or sitting, watching the world pass by in a pavement cafe with a visa already glued into my passport, and without a care in the world.
