Truth is I should have been leaving for France tonight, but my visa has yet to come through and I have no one to contact about it: not the program manager, not the consulate, not anyone I am going with. I feel so helpless and wish I could just go! But no, I have to wait for the French consulate to flex their political muscles.
French burocracy: 1
William in France: 0
I am sure this is not the last time we will face off.
