Up at 5 — OK really I’ve been up since 3am — the monsoon is heavy and loud this morning. Kaity and I are catching a flight this morning from Chiangmai to Bangkok. We have a 12:15pm appointment at the British embassy in the capital. She needs a visa for the UK and the English want her fingerprints.
Security is tight due to the threat of global terrorism. I get that. But the paperwork is akin to adoption filing. Confusing, contradictory and crazy-making. We’re praying for answers to our questions and a favorable response to Kait’s petition.
We’re back from Bangkok later today and then head to Burma and the Golden Triangle tomorrow.
