Getting ready to send out my passport to get my Chinese (X) visa. Another $150 hahaha. I am not anywhere near a Chinese embassy or consulate so I need to hire a courier to take my passport to get it stamped. I never seem to be able to do this with enough time before splitting so as not to neccesitate getting it rushed…..which means that I need to pay a whole lot more for express service. Oh, well. The way it goes, the way it goes. Money takers take money. Payer saps pay money. I need to sell some things.
