I finally picked up my Thai visa from the Thai Consulate in NYC, which is needed because my stay will be longer than 30 days (37 to be exact)…now I can avoid having to do a border-cross, which would have involved going to Cambodia, Burma, Malaysia, Vietnam or Laos, then coming right back. This is how most people get around these laws…and it’s perfectly legal.
The longest I’ve ever been away from home is 2 weeks, which was last year in Ibiza/ Spain. A month away involves so many other things I didn’t realize ’til a few weeks ago. I’m still scrambling to finish off last minute items…however I did manage to get my malaria pills, register with the US Embassy and buy travelers’ insurance yesterday. Only 2 more days left to do whatever else…as usual, work is 0wning me and interfering with my more important priorities 😉 Thank god I’m finally done with grad skewl.
